The Mental Health Index is put out by LifeWorks. In compares data from 2017-19 to this year.  Here are some of the results of that report and what our Canadian Index is.

The mental health of working Canadians improves modestly in July 2022. It moves from 64 to 65. 

0-49 = Distressed

50-79 = Strained

And 80-100= Optimal

  • 32% of Canadians have a high mental health risk, 44% have  a moderate mental health risk, and 25% have a low mental  health risk
  • Mental health scores declined in British Columbia, Alberta,  and the Maritimes, while improvements were observed in  all other provinces, with the greatest improvement in Quebec
  • The mental health score of managers has reverted to the trend observed throughout most of 2021 wherein the score is lower than that of non-managers and the national average.

     

More than two in five employees are experiencing tension or conflict with co-workers.
More than half report some negative impact to their children because of the events of the past two years.

27% indicate that their children have anxiety about the future.

24% report negative impact on their children’s social development.

23% report negative impact on their children’s academic development.

22% report negative impact on their children’s mental health.

Approximately 30 per cent of people in the high-risk group report diagnosed anxiety or depression, seven per cent report diagnosed anxiety or depression in the moderate-risk group, and one per cent of people in the low-risk group report diagnosed anxiety or depression.

While these stats may or may not be surprising to you. There is help out there, for whoever needs help.
