Mental health problems place a considerable burden on public health, the economy, and individual and social relationships (NICE, 2007). According to Mind (2005) the cost of mental health problems in England alone is more than £77 billion a year. The cost of private and NHS care is estimated to be over £12 billion, while a further £23 billion is lost as many people diagnosed with a mental health problem cannot work. Reduced quality of life and loss of life may account for £41 billion every year. In this section you will examine public health from a mental health perspective, beginning with an exploration of the relationship between public health and mental health.
