Canadian Community Health Survey - Mental Health and Well-being - ARCHIVED
The Internet publication, Mental Health and Well-being, from the 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) provides cross-sectional estimates at provincial and national levels. Topics include the prevalence of various mental disorders (depression, mania, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social phobia), mental health problems (alcohol and illicit drug dependence, gambling, suicide, eating trouble) and access to and use of mental health care services in the past 12 months.
The survey also collects information on many determinants and correlates of mental health such as socio-demographic information, income, stress, medication use and social support.
Data were collected from close to 37,000 respondents, aged 15 or older, residing in households in each province.
