This infographic was created by Children’s Mental Health Ontario.
HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:
Did you know that that, over the past 10 years, there has been a 54% increase in emergency department visits and a 60% increase in hospitalizations for children and youth seeking treatment for mental health issues in Ontario? This data, recently released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information, signals that our current mental health system is not working optimally.
To draw attention to these issues, Children’s Mental Health Ontario has released its second annual Report Card on the state of Child & Youth Mental Health in Ontario. The Report Card highlights the government’s progress toward key policy commitments and identifies critical areas where we must work together to make important improvements.
