APPG inquiry into the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health
2 July 2018
The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health recognised the importance of many social factors in
preventing mental health problems, and improving outcomes for people living with mental health
problems. However, it overlooks a key factor which links these issues – money. We believe it is critical that any mental health strategy for 2021 onwards includes explicit recognition of the links between financial difficulty and mental health problems.
