Our knowledge and awareness of mental health has never been greater, but little progress has been made in addressing a key cause of poor mental health: poverty and financial insecurity.

This book argues that tackling poverty and financial insecurity through well-designed social security systems could offer a new focus for improving our collective mental health.

Focusing on three key areas: prevention, support and investment, it sets out how social security could act as a public mental health intervention with the potential to help stop our current crisis trajectory of worsening poverty and mental health.

Katie Pybus is a Lecturer in Mental Health at the University of York and a registered mental health nurse.
