Project Syndicate: The moral urgency of mental health

PRINCETON – If we can prevent great suffering at no cost to ourselves, we ought to do so. That principle is widely accepted and difficult to dispute. Yet Western governments are neglecting an opportunity to reduce the great misery caused by mental illness, even though the net cost would be nil. The evidence for this claim comes from recent research by a team of economists at the London School of Economics. The team, directed by Richard Layard, drew on data from four major developed countries (Australia, Britain, Germany, and the United States) in which people were asked to indicate, on a 0-10 scale, how satisfied they were with their life.  Associated Article: 'Origins of Happiness: Evidence and Policy Implications', Andrew Clark, Sarah Fleche, Richard Layard, Nattavudh Powdthavee and George Ward, Vox article published December 2016.
