Adults with Mental Health Problems

One in four adults experience mental illness at some point during their lifetime and one in six experience symptoms at any one time, making mental illness the largest single cause of disability in our society. At the same time people with mental health problems are some of the most excluded and stigmatised. Mental ill health is estimated to cost the economy £105bn annually. This collection focuses on policies and practice aimed at improving the mental health of the population, promoting recovery, and combatting stigma and social exclusion.

This collection is made up of full text reports on adults with mental health problems, available to view free of charge
