About the RBC Children's Mental Health Parents Poll The RBC Children's Mental Health Parents Poll was completed online from July 19 to August 3, 2012 using Leger Marketing's online panel, LegerWeb, with a sample of 2,568 Canadian parents with at least one child under the age of 18. A probability sample of the same size would yield a margin of error of ±1.93 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
Kids Help Phone commissioned a companion poll to the 2012 RBC Children's Mental Health Parents Poll asking 115 youth visiting the Kids Help Phone website, who they have or would speak to about their mental health concerns. Since 1989, Kids Help Phone has been Canada's leading online and phone counselling service for young people age five to 20. It's free, anonymous, confidential and available 365 days a year in English and in French.
