Canadian Community Health Survey - Mental Health (CCHS)
Perceived mental health of person, category
Perceived mental health refers to the perception of a person's mental health in general, either by the person themselves or, in the case of proxy response, by the person responding. Perceived mental health provides a general indication of the population suffering from some form of mental disorder, mental or emotional problems, or distress, not necessarily reflected in self-reported (physical) health.
Person refers to an individual and is the unit of analysis for most social statistics programmes.
