Canadians’ mental health trending downward

Morneau Shepell is Canada’s leading source of the latest mental health metrics. Their Mental Health Index™ (MHI) provides a measure of the current mental health status of employed adults in a given geography, compared to the benchmarks collected in 2017, 2018, and 2019. The increases and decreases in the Index are intended to predict cost and productivity risks, and inform the need for investment in mental health supports by business and government

 

Aug 2020 Report Findings

The overall MHI for August is -11 points, down one point from July. A negative score indicates poorer mental health relative to the benchmark, and a positive score indicates better mental health.

After a period of slow but steady improvement, the MHI score declined in all but two categories as compared to July.

The data for this report was collected via an online survey of 3,000 Canadians who live in Canada and are currently employed. Participants were selected to be representative of the age, gender, industry and geographic distribution in Canada. The same respondents participate each month to remove sampling bias.
