CAMH Monitor eReport 2015: Highlights

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s (CAMH) Monitor is the longest ongoing representative survey of adult substance use and related harms, and mental health and well-being in Canada. The study, administered by the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research at CAMH, has gathered data on Ontarians since 1977.

This cycle collected responses from 5,013 adults through telephone interviews. It also describes changes in substance use and health indicators since 1996 and since 1977, where available, and provides a breakdown of data by sex, age, education level, income, marital status, and region (including breakdown by Local Health Integration Network).

Findings from the Monitor are used to inform programming, planning, and policy at local and system levels, to improve the quality of healthcare delivery in Ontario.
