This report sets out a road map to bring about a prevention revolution in mental health, delivered in every local area. It has helped shape Public Health England's input into the NHS Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.
The evidence presented in this report will inform the local prevention plans for mental health in every local authority area. It is based on sound evidence and analysis of the key data, and should support effective work in each area to drive down the incidence of mental ill health over the years to come.
These findings advocate a ‘whole population’ approach. This means that a local area, school, employer, public service or organisation, would look at the risks and needs of everyone before drawing up a strategy to encourage overall mental health literacy. Understanding and responding to different levels of risk and resilience requires services in all areas to adopt a thorough approach.
