Growing up in the unhappy shadow of the economic crisis. Mental health and well-being of the European child and adolescent population
This report from the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) highlights existing evidence on the detrimental effect of the ongoing economic crisis and austerity-driven measures on the mental health and well-being outcomes of the European child and adolescent population.The report shows how political choices, made within a framework of fiscal consolidation on many socio-economic determinants of people’s health, have had negative impacts on citizens’ mental health and well-being. The determinants include, for instance, employment status, household income and ability to provide adequate living conditions fundamental to optimal and sustainable human development.Children, as a particularly vulnerable group, are disproportionately affected by declining living standards. The restrictive atmosphere of the crisis, where political and financial choices of many national governments is to cut, rather than invest in early years, means that living standards and social and labour environments for families have been adversely affected.
