This is a joint report with WHO Europe which demonstrates how poor mental health experienced by individuals is a significant cause of wider social and health problems, including:
- low levels of educational achievement and work productivity
- higher levels of physical disease and mortality
- violence, relationship breakdown and poor community cohesion
In contrast, good mental health leads to better physical health, healthier lifestyles, improved productivity and educational attainment and lower levels of crime and violence.
