Understanding mental health: survey

Nova Scotians were asked to share their mental health experiences through this survey. The survey is now closed.

Government would like to thank everyone who took the time to share their mental health experiences. This information will inform next steps around addictions and mental health in Nova Scotia, including developing a social marketing campaign to encourage people to use our mental health services.

If you have any questions or feedback, email us at healthpromotion@novascotia.ca.
