The CAMH Monitor is the longest ongoing survey of substance use and mental health among adults in Canada.
This webinar is the first of a two-part series. It will provide an overview of the results, focusing on key trends as well as areas of improvement and of concern. A panel of CAMH researchers and clinicians will reflect on key trends and answer participants’ questions.
The second webinar (date TBD) will feature provincial partners who have used the CAMH Monitor data to inform programming, planning and policy. A panel will see how the data can inform planning that advances health equity and a focus on the broader determinants of health.
