Equity and mental health. Two broad terms with many meanings. What do they mean and how are they inter-related? The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Ontario approached the Wellesley Institute to write a piece exploring these questions for their popular magazine Network, whose most recent theme is “Focus on Equity: Exploring the Diverse Faces of Mental Illness”. I draw on my experiences as a former Londoner and explain how this all links back to the social determinants of health and how progress is being made to Put Equity Into Action.
