Abstract

Over the last 2 years the world has woken up to something that we in the world of children and young people's mental health have known for a very long time – the best correlate of adult life satisfaction is not income but physical and mental health, and we can predict adult life satisfaction best, not from academic qualifications but from the emotional health of 16-year olds (Clark, Fleche, Layard, Powdthavee, & Ward, 2016). The overwhelming burden of disease associated with mental ill health suggests that early intervention focused on child mental health is probably the most effective social investment any government could make both from economic and ethical perspectives. We are now at the moment of national insight – so how will we translate this into real goals and action, and drive our own effective strategies?
