More than half of Canada’s millennials are at a high risk of developing a mental health issue, according to a new poll released exclusively to Global News.
Just days before the start of Mental Health Week, a new Ipsos poll warns that 53 per cent of Canada’s young adults are at risk of grappling with depression and other mental well-being concerns. This group of Canadians had the highest rates of being at risk compared to Gen Xers and Baby Boomers.
“What’s fascinating is you have young people, particularly the millennial population, who seems to be more at risk than others,” John Wright, senior vice president of Ipsos, told Global News.
“The young people are the ones who are, in fact, feeling it the most at the moment and you pretty well hope that they’re talking more about it because within their own generation of growing up, it’s become part of the dialogue,” Wright said.
