NEW! CAMH Monitor Infographics and Evidence Snapshots

The CAMH Monitor, first conducted in 1977, is the longest ongoing addiction and mental health survey of adults 18 years and  older in Canada. The survey is designed to serve as the primary vehicle for monitoring substance use and mental health problems among Ontario adults. The CAMH Monitor provides epidemiological trends in alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, problem use, public opinion regarding drug issues and policies, and mental health among Ontario.
 
CAMH HPRC has recently partnered with the Evidence Exchange Network to share the CAMH Monitor results by developing infographics and evidence snapshots looking at two different population groups. Click below the images to download.

OSDUHS Mental Health and Well-Being Infographics

 

The Ontario Student Drug Use & Health Survey (OSDUHS) is a cross-sectional, anonymous survey of students in grades 7-12 in Ontario's publicly funded schools. The survey monitors drug use, mental health, physical health, bullying, gambling and other risk behaviours. Two reports are available from each cycle, one focusing on student drug use, the other on student mental health and well-being.

Developed by the CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre in partnership with EENet and the OSDUHS team, a series of infographics highlighting data from The Mental Health and Well-being of Ontario Students, 1991– 2013: Detailed OSDUHS Findings are now available in English and inFrench. The aim is to make OSDUHS data accessible to stakeholders in public health, health promotion, education, social services, government, and health care, and to inform public health monitoring, program planning, and policy making.

These infographics highlight data on indicators of mental health for the province as a whole as well as for individual Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs).The LHIN-specific infographics focus on students in grades 9 through 12 and compare LHIN and Ontario-wide data. An infographic focusing on the Ontario school setting is also available. Stay tuned for an additional infographic focusing on student use of opioids.
