  • The factsIn 2004, 22.8% of the total burden of disease in the UK was attributed to mental disorder, compared with 16.2% for cardio vascular disease and 15.9% for cancer

    Mental illness is the single largest cost to the National Health Service (NHS), being 10.4 billion, thats 10.8% of the NHS budget

    The wider costs amount to 105 billion a year

    Royal College of Psychiatrists, No health without public mental health, October 2010 and February 2011

  • Local ContextHealth and Well-Being Strategy - Outcome 3:Better Emotional and mental health and wellbeing for allPriority (i) Improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people, by focussing on prevention and early support.Priority (ii) Making Shropshire a dementia friendly county to enable earlier diagnosis and improved outlook for people with dementia

    Priority (i) listed above is to be delivered by the Childrens Trust and reported through to the Health and Well-Being Board.

    In Shropshire, it is estimated that between 26% and 32% of the population have a mental health condition with the main illnesses being depression and anxiety, alcohol related mental health problems, and personality disorders. In addition to this, over 4000 people in Shropshire are known to suffer from dementia. The ageing nature of our population means that this number is increasing, and problems with diagnosis mean that this figure is already likely to be much higher.

  • What are the risk factors?

    Factors that increase the probability of a child developing an emotional health problem

  • If a child has one risk factor their chance of developing an emotional health problem is 1-2%

    Three risk factors is 8%

    Four or more, increases to 20%

  • The benefits of school engagement warm, caring and supportive relationships in school are a crucial factor: not only in maintaining good mental health; but to achieve high levels of performance; greater enjoyment of school; more motivation; better learning; higher attainments; improved attendance levels(Weare and Gray, 2002)
