For the second year in a row, The Salvation Army, in conjunction with Angus Reid Public Opinion, has conducted polling research to better understand societal perceptions surrounding poverty. This year, we studied opinions about mental illness and addictions.
While previous research has revealed a public which is at times unsympathetic to those living on the streets or in poverty, this new research found that most Canadians are extremely empathetic and compassionate toward those struggling with mental illness and substance addictions. Findings revealed that many Canadians had first or second-hand experience dealing with these issues.[Taken from Overview]
