Marked by relentless and unpredictable change, we are now in the second year since the first case of COVID-19 was recorded in Canada, January 2020. The importance of mental health, resilience and well-being has been amplified as the pandemic created a social and economic crisis that has affected Canadians to an extent that will be felt for some time.
Without question, the events of this past year have challenged us to become more empathetic, flexible and digitally capable. The importance of mental health and awareness of its influences has never been greater. The Mental Health Index™ (MHI) provides critical insight into the mental health status of the working population and how that population is faring during these unprecedented times.
