Canadian Youth Mental Health and Illness Survey (CYMHIS, 1993)

This survey, sponsored by the Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA), was designed to provide a broad-brush profile of the opinions, awareness, and behaviour of Canadian youth toward mental illness and mental health issues. The survey showed that: (1) mainstream Canadian youth are at a disturbingly high risk for mental health problems, (2) youth are largely dissatisfied with existing mental health services, (3) youth are most comfortable interacting among themselves. These findings were the impetus for the development of a regional youth mental health promotion and mental illness prevention program (Youth Net/Réseau Ado (YN/RA)). https://ww1.cpa-apc.org/Publications/Archives/Bulletin/1997/Aug/c-review.htm
