Public mental health, broadly defined, is the science and art of promoting mental health and preventing mental illness, and supporting those with mental health problems. Over the past decades, research has identified numerous factors which influence mental health, but we have been lacking a comprehensive conceptual framework.
We set out to identify develop a conceptual framework for public mental health, which brought together knowledge from the academic literature, policy documents, and stakeholder consultations. We identified 55 determinants of public mental health across four domains: individual, family, community, and structural, which we summarized on an interactive website: www.publicmentalhealth.com.
The conceptual framework summarizes our current state of knowledge on the determinants of public mental health. Importantly, it brings together academic literature, practitioner perspectives, and public views into a meaningful framework. This framework can shape our understanding of the causes of mental health in the population and provide conceptual grounding for research and practice.
