There is a close link between poverty and mental health: poverty can be a cause or consequence of mental ill health. There are a complex set of environmental factors which can significantly affect mental health and getting to the root of the problem requires engagement with this complexity.

This paper presents a conceptual framework for understanding the relationship between poverty and mental health and offers recommendations to improve the situation across the life course.
