Quality of Life Impact on Mental Health Needs.
Longest, James W.; And Others
Recent research indicates that basic indicators of quality of life have some consistent associations with mental health needs. Factors such as socioeconomic status, proportion of a population in poverty, unemployment and underemployment rates, family instability and family life cycle have persistent associations with social and economic stress and mental health needs. By considering these factors in aggregate, areas of relatively low and high need can be identified. (Author)
