Mental Health Statistics for Montreal

Montreal seems to have a higher average level of mental health than the surrounding province of Quebec. According to the most recent census data, Montreal has a suicide rate of 9.9 per 100,000 compared to Quebec’s rate of 14.0 per 100,000. Montreal’s rate of psychiatric hospitalizations (257 per 100,000) is a little over half of Quebec’s (434 per 100,000). 

However, mental health remains an issue among Montreal’s homeless population. Estimates say one third of all people who become homeless have mental health issues. For local homeless women, this rate jumps up to 75%. In a study of 469 homeless individuals living with mental health concerns, 34% had psychotic symptoms. 

In 2013, a program called PRISM was launched to serve homeless individuals in Montreal with severe mental health issues. The program provides food, lodging, and mental health treatment to help people stabilize and become self-sufficient. The program has treated 500 individuals since 2013, the majority of whom have recovered from homelessness.
