Canadians In One Province Have Much Better Mental Health Than Everyone Else In The Country

A new report has laid out the statistics. 🇨🇦
Mental Health In Canada Was Way Better In One Province Than All The Rest

When it comes to mental health in Canada, one province is leagues above everywhere else — and even the country as a whole.

Morneau Shepell has put out the Mental Health Index for November 2020 and a positive score means better mental health.

On the other hand, a negative score means a decline.

Overall, Canada had a score of -11.1 last month, which was up slightly from when it was -11.4 in October.

-2.7 Newfoundland & Labrador's mental health score

When it comes to provinces, Newfoundland and Labrador had the best score in November at -2.7. That's the highest of any province!

In second place was the Maritimes, which was at -10.3 last month. 

B.C. was at -10.6, Ontario was at -11, Alberta was at -13, Saskatchewan was at -13.8, and Manitoba was at -14.6 during the same month.

Since May, no province has received a better mental health score than Newfoundland and Labrador.

Earlier this year, calls to CAMH about mental health surged by 750% from March to April, which is when the COVID-19 pandemic began to affect Canada.

Justin Trudeau Just Promised To Crack Down On 'Mobs' Protesting In Health Care Settings

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.

With anti-vaccine protests taking place all over the country on September 13, the federal leaders have finally weighed in and Justin Trudeau is not holding back.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13. "Whether that's hospitals, clinics, abortion clinics, pharmacies, testing centres, it is not OK that across the country, hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way."
