About Mental Health
In the last few years, we have seen a growing awareness of mental health and mental illness nationally, provincially and locally. Lambton County is a flourishing, resilient community with a generally high level of mental health literacy and low level of stigma toward mental illness. But our most vulnerable people experience the greatest stigma and worse baseline mental health. This is particularly true for young people between 15 and 24 years of age.
Although better than the Ontario average, our residents are not confident enough in the ability of our institutions and organizations to address mental health needs. We have a strong foundation of mental wellbeing, but there is more that can be done to improve and maintain positive mental health for everyone in Lambton County.
