Affordable Housing and Mental Health

No Health without Mental Health
Ten questions for your council
This briefing provides councillors and health champions with ten questions to ask their public health teams. It aims to help local authorities promote the wellbeing of their population and improve the recovery of people with mental health problems by providing information about the size, impact and cost of the unmet need to treat mental health problems, to prevent them from arising and to promote wellbeing.
