In any given year, one in five people in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).

By age 40, about half of Canadians will have or have had a mental illness, but it affects all Canadians at some time or another through their own experience or that of a family member, friend or colleague.

Mental illness affects people of all ages, education, income levels, and cultures, but systemic inequalities such as racism, poverty, homelessness, discrimination, colonial and gender-based violence, among others, can worsen mental health and symptoms of mental illness, according to the CMHA. These can be exacerbated further if mental health supports are difficult to access.
