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.
