The Mental Health of Children and Youth in Ontario: A Baseline Scorecard


This report describes the state of child and youth mental health and health system performance in Ontario in 2013/14 using ICES health administrative data, population-based survey data and school-level education data. The report includes 25 contextual and performance indicators. Findings for each indicator are presented along with a summary of findings that integrates results from multiple indicators. Future directions include a commitment to replicate the scorecard every two years to measure performance trends and to integrate more data to facilitate a more comprehensive evaluation of the child and youth mental health system.

The technical appendix provides further information on indicator development and calculation.
