    Description:

    This Juristat uses data from the 2014 General Social Survey on Canadians' Safety (Victimization) to analyze self-reported victimization among people with mental health-related disabilities, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, anorexia, substance abuse and other conditions which limit their daily lives. Victims' experiences with the justice system, including interactions with police and use of victims' support services, are reviewed. Additionally, this article looks at how mental health disability, substance use, homelessness and a history of child abuse intersect to define an especially vulnerable population. The association between disabilities related to mental health and key markers of societal participation is also reviewed.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    About one in five Canadians have suffered from a mental condition at some point in their lives. Like other health conditions, mental conditions represent an economic burden to society, and costs are often comparable to physical conditions such as heart disease. Expenditures on mental conditions and addictions for Canadian provinces in 2003/2004 were $6.6 billion, of which $5.5 billion was from public sources.

    Major psychiatric conditions are often associated with physical comorbidity - in particular, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and respiratory conditions. Reasons for this association are diverse, and not fully understood. Many health conditions increase the risk for a mental condition. Mental comorbidity can complicate help-seeking, diagnosis, and treatment, and it influences prognosis. Hence understanding the burden of mental conditions as a comorbid condition among those with physical morbidities is important.

    This report represents an assessment of a comprehensive set of factors associated with acute-care hospitalizations for mental conditions in Canada. The first part explores the overall burden of a mental condition as the most responsible condition (the condition considered most responsible for the hospitalization) and as a comorbid condition (a diagnosed condition other than the most responsible for the hospitalization) in acute-care hospitals in Canada. It presents the number of hospitalizations, the number of hospital days and the average length of stay of a hospitalization. In the second part, linked health survey and hospital data are used to describe the socioeconomic and lifestyle factor characteristics of patients who were admitted to an acute-care hospital with a mental condition within four years after responding to the survey.

  • Articles and reports: 85-561-M2009016
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This report provides an overview of issues on mental health and the criminal justice system, as well as the feasibility of collecting data on individuals with mental illness in the criminal justice system. While there have been pockets of studies and data collection activities trying to quantify the issue at the police, courts and corrections levels, there is presently a lack of data to understand the extent of the problem to inform decision-making regarding policy and action, and to measure outcomes of current initiatives and processes.

    The first part of the report describes issues with regard to mental illness and the criminal justice system, including definitional challenges, criminal justice system processes, previous studies on the prevalence of individuals with mental illness in the criminal justice system, and the relationship between individuals with mental illness and criminal justice involvement.

    The second part presents the results from consultations with over 100 stakeholders, including law enforcement, courts, Review Boards, correctional services, mental health organizations, academics and researchers and non-governmental organizations. It also proposes options for collecting data on persons with mental health issues in the criminal justice system.

    Description:

    While the majority of Canadians aged 50 to 69 not in the labour force were retired in 2003, nearly half a million were not working for health-related reasons. The Canadian Community Health Survey is used to compare the health of working individuals aged 50 to 69 with their contemporaries who are not working, whether for health or other reasons. Chronic conditions and lifestyle choices are also examined.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Since the early 1980s, in relation to the size of the population,g eneral and psychiatric hospitals have seen a drop in separations for mental disorders. This trend relects a tendency throughout the 1980s and early 1990s to hospitalize only patients with more serious mental disorders. As a result, the average length of stay in both types of institutions has risen, as has the total number of days of care for mental disorders.
