The economic case for investment in Wales

This report is published by the All Wales Mental Health Promotion Network and co-written by Michael Parsonage. It calls for greater investment in mental health promotion and argues that this will bring economic advantages.

The report highlights how mental illnesses can often occur early in life and persist throughout adulthood. It recommends early interventions such as supporting parents and children in their early years. Support for lifelong learning, improving working lives and investing in positive steps for mental health are also recommended.
