Fast Facts about Mental Illness in Youth

• It is estimated that 10-20% of Canadian youth are affected by a mental illness or disorder - the single most disabling group of disorders worldwide.

• Today, approximately 5% of male youth and 12% of female youth, age 12 to 19, have experienced a major depressive episode.

• The total number of 12-19 year olds in Canada at risk for developing depression is a staggering 3.2 million.

• Once depression is recognized, help can make a difference for 80% of people who are affected, allowing them to get back to their regular activities.

• Mental illness is increasingly threatening the lives of our children, with Canada's youth suicide rate the third highest in the industrialized world.

• Suicide is among the leading causes of death in 15-24 year old Canadians, second only to accidents; 4,000 people die prematurely each year by suicide.

• Schizophrenia is youth's greatest disabler as it strikes most often in the 16 to 30 year age group, affecting an estimated one person in 100.

• Surpassed only by injuries, mental disorders in youth are ranked as the second highest hospital care expenditure in Canada.
