The Mental Health Index™ report: December 2022

January 26, 2023

The mental health of working Canadians improved modestly in December yet remains at a level that is only modestly higher than the most distressing period of the pandemic.

  • At 64.6, the mental health of Canadians improved slightly from the prior month.
  • 32% of Canadians have a high mental health risk, 43% have a moderate mental health risk, and 25% have a low mental health risk.
  • Anxiety, isolation, and work productivity have been the lowest mental health sub-scores for eight consecutive months.
  • The mental health score of managers improved and is higher than the score of non-managers and the national average.
  • With a two-point decline from November 2022, the Maritimes has the lowest mental health score while Manitoba has the highest score. Newfoundland and Labrador saw a 2.3-point improvement in mental health following three months of declines.
