Ensuring good mental health within the population and throughout the life course is about more than the absence of a mental disorder.
Mental health is a major contributor to overall wellbeing and quality of life within the population and is related to many determinants such as social networks, physical health and educational attainment.
Mental illness covers a range of symptoms and experiences, which can bring distress and reduces the ability to cope with the demands of everyday life.
Enabling people to develop and maintain good mental health is critically important to a healthy, happy and productive population.
Further information on mental health can be found in Public Health England’s Health Profiles.
