Mental health is influenced by social, biological, psychological and economic factors. Further, mental illness affects about one out of every five Canadians at some point in their lifetime, including a wide range of conditions such as depression and schizophrenia.

We offer expertise and resources for population-based mental health promotion, mental illness and addressing the social determinants of health.
