Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who are in need, but did not see someone. This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "I did not know where to go to get help" by the number of respondents who answered at least one of the following "I took the necessary steps and I am waiting for my first appointment, I did not feel help was available, I thought the problem would go away on its own, I was told the wait time would be too long, I felt uncomfortable going for help, I did not know where to go to get help or another reason" to the question: If you did not see or talk to someone about your mental or emotional health, please choose why not.
