Mental health and wellbeing of adults

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This chapter looks at the mental health and wellbeing of adults in Scotland and in the
    NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) Board area. It addresses issues about
    how we can measure the mental health and wellbeing of adults, which can also help us
    to see if our policies are working. The chapter identifies local approaches to promote
    positive mental health and well being, with a particular focus on reducing inequalities
    across a range of population groups, preventing mental health problems including
    suicide prevention and improving the quality of life of those experiencing mental health
    problems.
