The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and Shoppers Drug Mart have just launched an online interactive mental health resource tool. This tool gives Canadian women an easy, accessible way to conduct an assessment of their mental health.
"Research shows gender is a critical determinant of mental health and women are twice as likely as men to develop depression or anxiety at some point in their lives" and it is no secret that "women face unique stresses and challenges that can have a negative impact on their mental health and can change at different stages in life.
