Share How Do We Measure Mental Illness and Addictions at a Population Level?

Event Details

Rates of mental illness and addictions at a population level are always based on estimates. In Canada, different studies have shown that rate to be anywhere from 1 in 3 to 1 in 10. With Ontario’s population at 13.6 million, that is a big gap.

How do we understand these very different numbers? And how do we use them to inform our work in Ontario’s mental health and addictions system?

Join us for a free webinar and learn about:

  • Current sources of data on rates of mental illness and addictions in Canada;
  • Factors to consider when thinking about how this data applies to the Ontario setting.


Note: Space is limited, so if you’re participating with others, please register as one person and view the webinar together.

 

Date: Wednesday, 18 March 2015
Time: from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
