The economic argument for more mental health promotion

This report although only about Wales provides some interesting information on the cost of mental illness in Wales. For example the cost of mental health care amounts to 20% of the healthcare budget which is higher than cardiovascular disease (16%) and cancer (15%). It also provides advice on how we can reduce the "burden of disease" and improve the mental health promotion of children and adults in Wales. The report gives practical examples and reasons to improve mental health care in Wales, which can only be of benefit to the people who live there.
