Mental Health and Addictions Dashboard

Since 2013, ICES’ Mental Health and Addictions Program Framework Research Team has been tasked by the Ontario Ministry of Health with monitoring and evaluating the province’s mental health and addictions system through performance measures, or indicators.
This dashboard provides an overview of mental health and addiction trends in Ontario including sociodemographic characteristics that may impact mental health service use and access to care.
