This comprehensive and accessible book draws on research on the development and persistence of behavioural problems in childhood, adult depression and schizophrenia. The association between social disadvantage and mental ill health, as well as the need for preventive care to start from conception and the crucial importance of maternal mental health, are discussed.A variety of prominent programmes which have good evidence of efficacy are described.

These include:Targeted approaches with individuals and familiesMacro policies affecting housing and employmentLifestyle contributions such as diet and exerciseHowever, some attempts to achieve preventive benefits have not succeeded, and reflecting on these problems is an important feature of this review.Jennifer Newton has written extensively on these issues for over twenty years, and her careful examination of the research literature provides a succinct overview of the state of current knowledge which will benefit mental health professionals, and students of health psychology and public health.

It also takes a life course perspective, and considers how, when and why vulnerability persists through childhood into adult life, so will interest those whose work focuses on child well-being.
