Between April and October 2014, the NCCHPP, in collaboration with other National Collaborating Centres (NCCs) for Public Health, surveyed public health practitioners’ needs with regards to population mental health.
The strengths and needs identified in this document come from two types of needs assessment: direct encounters with practitioners and an online questionnaire to which 453 actors from the broad public health workforce responded to express their needs with regards to population mental health.
In this final document, we have added the strengths identified and needs expressed by the French-language respondents to the previously published preliminary results. This final document explores in greater detail the responses provided earlier, and outlines the most salient elements produced through both the web questionnaire and encounters with practitioners.
