Eight ways to prevent mental ill health

Public Health England (PHE) has launched a new tool for local public health teams identifying the most cost effective mental health programmes.

One of the eight initiatives it describes is a resilience programme in schools that could save £5 for every £1 invested over three years. Mental health problems represent the largest single cause of disability in the UK. The cost to the economy is estimated at £105 billion a year.
