Good for you Canada! There is still far too much silence and stigma around mental health issues, but it’s important to celebrate success when it appears!

Is mental health awareness improving?

 

After years of campaigns and advocacy, mental health stigma may be lessening while awareness may be increasing, according to promising new Ipsos findings released exclusively to Global News.

 

Eighty-five per cent of Canadians surveyed say they consider mental health to be as important as physical health – another 12 per cent say it’s even more important, the pollsters revealed.

Half of Canadians (49 per cent) say they’re personally more comfortable talking about their mental health compared to two years ago.
