FPH report: ‘Better Mental Health For All: a public health approach to mental health improvement’
The Faculty of Public Health (FPH)* has published a ground-breaking report about public mental health, which makes the case for improving mental health for everyone and preventing mental health problems.
It is the work of the Faculty of Public Health’s Mental Health Committee in conjunction with the Mental Health Foundation. Public Health England supported the project financially as part of their wider programme to promote best practice in public mental health.
“It’s imperative that a public health perspective is taken within mental health to change the current crisis and reactive service model. The report shows that we know how much can be done to promote mental health and well-being across all age groups, prevent mental health problems from occurring and to support people to recover their mental health”. Marguerite Regan, Policy Manager at the Mental Health Foundation (taken from FPH website)
