Detail

This report looks at how a person’s mental resources change through life, as a child, adult and in old age, and identifies factors that can help or hinder their development.

It sets out the opportunities and challenges facing the UK over the next 20 years and beyond, and suggests what government, individuals and businesses can do to meet the challenges ahead.

Further details of the project are available from the mental capital and wellbeing project page.
