Mental health inequalities: factsheet
Some groups of people have far poorer mental health than others, often reflecting social disadvantage. In many cases, those same groups of people have less access to effective and relevant support for their mental health. And when they do get support, their experiences and outcomes are often poorer, in some circumstances causing harm. This ‘triple barrier’ of mental health inequality affects large numbers of people from different sections of the population.
As part of our work in the Commission for Equality in Mental Health, we've put together some of the key statistics about mental health inequalities.
