Barry, M M; Petersen, I (2014) Promotion of Mental Health and Primary Prevention of Mental Disorders: Priorities for Implementation, An Evidence Brief. WHO, EMRO.
This paper provides a briefing for policy and decision-makers on the evidence for mental health promotion and primary prevention interventions that can be implemented and sustained at a reasonable cost, whilst generating clear health and social gains in the population. Based on the evidence from high, middle and low income countries, a number of priority areas and best buys for implementation are identified for promoting mental health and preventing mental ill-health across the lifespan from infancy to adulthood and include actions which can be delivered across different settings and delivery platforms.
