Abstract

This paper sets out issues to be considered in making the economic case for investing in child and adolescent mental well-being promotion and prevention/early treatment of mental disorder. We highlight the role that various types of economic tool can play, and the different questions that economic analysis can address. We end by considering how the evidence base can be further strengthened and fed into policy and practice processes across Europe.
