Mental Health Research Canada – National Polling Reports

Since early 2020, Mental Health Research Canada has been polling Canadians every 6- to 12 weeks. The primary aim is to gain a deeper understanding of the current state of mental health and to pinpoint the factors that contribute to mental distress. These reports provide insights into various aspects, including perceived anxiety, depression, thoughts of suicide, resilience, and optimism. Additionally, the surveys monitor behaviors like substance use and disruptions in normal functioning caused by mental health challenges. Mental Health Research Canada places special emphasis on groups that have been shown to be disproportionately affected relative to the general population, this includes LGBTQIA+ individuals, young adults aged 18-34, and healthcare professionals.
