Mental Health Index Report

February 1, 2021

Morneau Shepell’s Mental Health Index shines a spotlight on the current mental health status of employed adults amidst the COVID-19 pandemic across Canada, the United States, United Kingdom and Australia.

Benchmarked against 2017-2019 data, fluctuations in the Index can predict cost and productivity risks while informing the need for mental health investments by business and government.

Inside each report you’ll find:

  • Mental Health Index: measuring change compared to the benchmark for mental health and risk.
  • Mental Stress Change Score: measuring the level of reported mental stress compared to the prior month.
  • Spotlight: exploring the specific impact of current issues in the community.

The Mental Health Index is published each month.

 

February 2021

With reports of multiple highly contagious variants of the COVID-19 virus, restrictions across the country and the threat of a third wave, Canadians are navigating uncharted territory as their mental health continues to suffer. February marks 11 consecutive months of diminished mental health when compared to before the pandemic. The level of mental health in February indicates that the working population is currently as distressed as the most distressed one per cent of working Canadians, prior to 2020.
