Public mental health

Resources to support national and local organisations to improve the public’s mental health.

Public Health England (PHE) supports the view that everyone, irrespective of where they live, should have the opportunity to achieve good mental health and wellbeing.

We have a range of resources available to support national and local organisations to do this and deliver on the commitments within the NHS report ‘Five Year Forward View for Mental Health’.

This includes the 3 key overlapping areas of public mental health across the life course:

  • mental health promotion
  • prevention of mental health problems and suicide prevention
  • improving lives, supporting recovery and inclusion of people living with mental health problems
