Linking poverty and mental health: A lifespan view

This report summarizes a literature review examining the relationship between poverty and child and youth mental health. We examined the relationship between poverty - assessed by family and area characteristics - and child and youth mental health cross-sectionally and longitudinally, as well as the extent to which the association is explained by other variables measured on children, families and areas.
