Abstract

This chapter looks at the mental health and wellbeing of adults in Scotland and in the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) Board area. It addresses issues about how we can measure the mental health and wellbeing of adults, which can also help us to see if our policies are working. The chapter identifies local approaches to promote positive mental health and well being, with a particular focus on reducing inequalities across a range of population groups, preventing mental health problems including suicide prevention and improving the quality of life of those experiencing mental health problems.
