Mental Illness

Mental illness is affected by a mix of social, economic, psychological, biological and genetic factors. These pages describe mental and behavioural disorder-related hospitalizations and emergency department visits.

These HealthSTATS pages provides data on hospital admissions and emergency room visits primarily related to mental illness and related disorders from 2011 to 2015. Hospital admissions to adult mental health beds are primarily recorded in the Ontario Mental Health Reporting System (OMHRS ), while hospital admissions among children and youth, and some adult admissions, are reported in the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD). Emergency room visits are reported by the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS).
