Intensions Study: Mental Health Literacy

A new study by Intensions Consulting and the University of British Columbia was recently published in the Journal of Mental Health, under the title, 'Men's depression and suicide literacy: a nationally representative Canadian survey.'

The study, which surveyed 901 English-speaking Canadian adults, confirmed a number of gaps in men's depression literacy, with over a third of Canadian adults (38%) incorrectly believing that having several distinct personalities may be a sign of men’s depression, and almost a quarter of Canadian adults (24%) incorrectly believing that men with depression often speak in a rambling and disjointed way.

On April 19, 2016,  the BBC published an article titled, 'Truth be told, we're more honest with robots.' Written by Bryan Borzykowski, the article included findings from our recent Intensions Consulting study on the Future of Work across Canada.

To quote from the article: "People are more open with automated tools because they believe computers don’t judge and that they’re more ethical, studies show. A study, released in March by Vancouver, Canada-based market research firm Intensions Consulting found that 26% of Canadian adults believed an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and mangers."
