Morneau Shepell’s Mental Health Index shines a spotlight on the current mental health status of employed adults amidst the COVID-19 pandemic across Canada, the United States, United Kingdom and Australia.
Benchmarked against 2017-2019 data, fluctuations in the Index can predict cost and productivity risks while informing the need for mental health investments by business and government.
Inside each report you’ll find:
- Mental Health Index: measuring change compared to the benchmark for mental health and risk.
- Mental Stress Change Score: measuring the level of reported mental stress compared to the prior month.
Spotlight: exploring the specific impact of current issues in the community.
The Mental Health Index is published each month.
As Canadians head into 2021, COVID-19 restrictions remain in place in most parts of the country. The ongoing impact of the pandemic continues to have a negative effect on the mental health of Canadians, with January marking ten consecutive months of diminished mental health when compared to before the pandemic.
