"They found that having a cat only appeared to affect negative moods – i.e. people were less likely to feel bad if they had a cat, but not necessarily feel more positive or happy."

Past surveys from New Savoy and the BPS have identified high levels of stress and feelings of depression amongst mental health professionals, and these have been linked to the dominance of the ‘target culture’ in front line psychological therapy services.

A new research paper argues that the desire for personal happiness, though knitted into the fabric of American history and culture, is held in less esteem by other cultures.

Not Everyone Wants to Be Happy

Peter Kinderman, the president of the British Psychology Society, said the figures were “tragic and shocking, but not terribly surprising”. Cuts to health budgets, combined with widening inequality, social turmoil and economic austerity were leading to an ever tighter squeeze on the poor.

CQC to investigate as mental health detentions hit 10-year high

Rachael Hall, the school’s sports coach, says:

“I’ve never known anything like it – children are going out walking every evening and weekend. Teaching assistants take the children out at lunchtime three times a week and take whole classes out twice a week. I’ve had parents telling me how happy they are to be spending time with their children going fobbing rather than sitting in front of the TV.”

The sanctions process may be detrimental to people’s mental health and wellbeing.

"Self-harm among young people, particularly girls, has rocketed in the last decade.

"The number of girls admitted to hospital after cutting themselves has quadrupled, incidents of poisoning have risen by more than 40%, and demand for university counselling services has mushroomed.

Growing crisis in children and young people's mental health demands action

Our President Professor Peter Kinderman says:

"With partners like the Faculty of Public Health and the Mental Health Foundation , and with all of our colleagues over time, I hope that prevention, and an approach to prevention rooted in an appreciation of the social context, and the links to social justice, will become a key element of our policies in the future."
