Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article examines the relationship between poverty and mental health problems. In doing so we draw upon the experience of Glasgow, our home city, which contains some of Western Europe’s areas of greatest concentrated poverty and poorest health outcomes. We highlight how mental health issues are related directly to poverty, which in turn underlies wider health inequalities. We then outline implications for Psychiatry.
