Why mental health matters.

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Canadians in any given year. We know mental health problems and illnesses have a high economic cost and take an even greater human toll.   Mental health is more than the absence of illness. Just like our physical health, it is a resource. It gives us the capacity to enjoy life and deal with challenges.  It is both a health and a social policy issue in which policy makers can make a big difference.

How the Mental Health Commission of Canada can help you.

The MHCC has a wealth of policy documents, research papers, tools and resources to guide your policy and program efforts to improve mental health for all in Canada.
