People living in the least deprived areas of England live around 20 years longer in good physical and mental health than people in the most deprived areas.  Tackling and reducing health inequalities means giving everyone the same opportunities to lead a mentally and physically healthy life, no matter where they live and who they are.  This report presents the individual and local actions that can be applied to address mental health inequalities in England. Advocates particular approaches and interventions to reduce the risk factors underpinning inequalities and applying these proportionately across the social gradient. Calls for action to ensure:

  1. Healthy children.
  2. Healthy minds.
  3. Healthy places.
  4. Healthy communities.
  5. Healthy habits.
