Canadians give governments an “F” in meeting their mental health/substance use health needs: CAMIMH Poll (January 2024)

The Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) released its 2nd Annual Mental Health and Substance Use Health Report Card that reflects the views of the people of Canada when it comes to rating governments across four categories (access, confidence, satisfaction and effectiveness) in providing mental health and substance use health care services (see the attached news release and slide deck). The bottom line is that governments are not moving nearly fast enough nor making the necessary public investments to improve timely access mental health and substance use health services.
