Sinking and Swimming: understanding Britain's unmet needs.

Jill Anderson pointed me in the direction of this invaluable piece of work via the Mental Health in Higher Education internet group. In my opinion it deserves to be set alongside Peter Townsend's work as a hugely valuable reference. Published by the Young Foundation, their text says:

"This is a study of who is sinking and who is swimming in Britain today. Based on new analysis of statistical data, case studies, surveys and hundreds of conversations with people across the country, the study shows where the most acute needs are and how they interrelate. It looks at why some people can cope with shocks and setbacks and others can't. And it draws on the implications for policy, philanthropy and public action."

I've certainly ordered a hard copy which will be invaluable for reference beside the computer.

Tremendous!
