One-Third of Canadians Reporting a Need for Mental Health Care in 2012 Did Not Feel They Received Adequate Care

September 20, 2013 – A recently released Statistics Canada report based on data from the 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey has found that, in 2012, approximately 17% of Canadians above the age of 15 reporting requiring mental health care in the preceding year. Only 67% of those reporting such a need felt as though their need had been fully met, and the most frequently reported need – and the least likely need to be met – was the need for mental health counselling.

The Globe and Mail‘s coverage of the report can be found here.

The full report, authored by Adam Sunderland and Leanne C. Findlay, can be found on the Statistics Canada’s website, here.
