Promotion, prevention and early intervention dramatically cut the costs of mental ill health, says government – sponsored research report

Every pound spent on parenting programmes to prevent conduct disorder in young children saves the UK £8 over a child’s lifetime, according to a report published today by the Department of Health, London School of Economics and Political Science, Centre for Mental Health and Institute of Psychiatry. This economic impact is over and above the positive effects on the child’s wellbeing. And the economic returns from school-based programmes to deal with bullying and other behavioural problems are even larger.
