Local authorities and the public’s mental health

This report examines the initiatives of nine local councils that are rising to the challenge of promoting good mental health and preventing poor mental health in their communities.

These councils seek to improve population mental health, reduce inequalities and prevent mental ill health in their communities through a combination of strategic and practical approaches. The report presents learning from these areas, prior to the pandemic and in the midst of the challenges brought by Covid-19, alongside an overview of the evidence for prevention and the national policy context.
