Kathleen Dobson
Institute for Work & Health

Despite much effort aimed at improving the mental health of Canadians, we still know little about the prevalence of two common mental health conditions across the working population. In this presentation, IWH Research Associate Kathleen Dobson shares her doctoral research exploring trends in depression and anxiety disorders among working-age Canadians, from 2000 to 2016. She also highlights challenges in creating high-quality population-based evidence about the labour force’s mental health.

Please note that a slidedeck and slidecast of this presentation will not be posted after the event.
