This framework contributes to supporting the integration of population mental health within public health objectives and mandates across Canada. It frames the notion of population mental health following Kindig and Stoddart’s (2003) population health framework. As such it integrates the determinants of mental health, mental health outcomes, and the policies and interventions that aim at improving mental health in the population and reducing inequalities in mental health.
