Anxiety Disorders and Depression in Adults

Canadians are reporting increased moderate to severe anxiety and feelings of depression since the start of the pandemic. With more people seeking help for mental health needs, clinicians need easy access to point-of-care tools that reflect the most up-to-date and relevant evidence.
