Supplementary notes

This analysis includes patients (stays) in general hospitals and psychiatric hospitals. Average costs by type of diagnosis are estimated using RIWs based on the 2018 Case Mix Group+. Data is not available for Quebec and Nunavut. Stand-alone psychiatric facilities in Ontario were also excluded as they do not submit data to the DAD.

Estimated average costs by type of hospital were calculated using the Canadian MIS Database and Hospital Mental Health Database. The cost estimates include the hospital cost of labour, nursing and allied health professionals, pharmacy (drugs), supplies, medical imaging, laboratory and indirect (overhead). Physician compensation was excluded from the analysis and spending on MHA could be underestimated. Data is not available for Quebec and Nunavut.
*Mood disorders include depression, bipolar disorder, other persistent mood (affective) disorders and unspecified mood (affective) disorders.
