Myth: Mental disorders are rare.
Fact: Mental disorders are not rare and affect nearly every Canadian either directly or indirectly. Approximately 1 in 5 adolescents between the ages of 15 and 24 report a mental disorder, substance abuse or learning disability. Between 15 and 20 percent of the Canadian adolescent population suffers from a mental disorder at one time or another.
