In this collection of papers, the authors explore the questions, "What contributes to a mentally healthy community?" and "What makes some communities more mentally healthy or resilient than others?" The Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) commissioned these papers from experts from across Canada and internationally to foster discussion of the complex ways in which individual, social, cultural, physical and socio-economic determinants may affect individual and community mental health.
These papers represent a cross-section of views on diverse topics including workplace mental health, the role of social capital and mental health promotion. In addition, they provide new perspectives on potential indicators of community mental health.
This collection complements CPHI's work in two of its theme areas for 2007 to 2010: determinants of mental health and resilience, and place and health. In 2009, a second part of this collection was released, focusing on Aboriginal perspectives. Mentally Healthy Communities: Aboriginal Perspectives

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.
