Although lower socio-economic status (SES) has been linked consistently with higher rates of mental illness, it has not always been associated with higher rates of mental health service use. In this Analysis in Brief, the relationship between SES and inpatient hospital mental health service use for depression was examined in 13 cities across Canada. The results suggest an inverse relationship, such that individuals from lower-SES neighbourhoods were more likely to be hospitalized for depression than those from higher-SES neighbourhoods. However, no relationship was observed between SES and hospital length of stay or hospital readmission rates, suggesting that differences in SES were not linked to differences in the severity of illness or persistence of treatment.
