Efforts to improve the mental health of populations has focused on getting more people into treatment. However, large increases in the provision of both pharmacological and psychological treatments has not produced detectable improvement in the mental health of populations. This talk will discuss the possible reasons and suggest that more attention be paid to the 'quality gap' and the 'prevention gap'.
Please note this event also includes the official opening of the 2020 Public Health Summer School.
