Nelson G~~Prilleltensky I~~et al
The purpose of this research was to obtain an initial profile of the state of prevention in Canada. Informants from departments of mental health, health promotion, education & women’s directorates were sent a survey. Findings are analyzed in terms of policies, budgets, personnel & programs. A summary of trends across Canada is provided. While many innovative projects were reported, in general it was found that very few resources are devoted to the prevention of psychosocial disorders.
