Pathways to Promoting Mental Health: A 2015 Survey of Ontario Public Health Units
AMH HPRC is pleased to launch the report Pathways to Promoting Mental Health: A 2015 Survey of Ontario Public Health Units.
The report highlights the results of a 2015 provincial survey conducted as a partnership between the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's Health Promotion Division and the CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre.
With participation from all 36 Ontario public health units (PHUs), the report documents current mental health promotion (MHP) activities in public health being delivered for Ontarians of all ages and stages and identifies specific MHP activities occurring for adults 18 years and older.
Key findings from the report show that there is a substantial amount of MHP work underway, with wide variation in specific activities. The report also presents recommendations that help identify mechanisms and opportunities to better integrate MHP as part of PHU practice.
