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

March 18, 2015

11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. (EDT)

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.

Dr. Jürgen Rehm is Director of the Social and Epidemiological Research (SER) Department at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
