It will build on the conclusions of a landmark conference in Auckland in August 2014, which led to the creation of the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA).
Editors: Professor Matthew Smith (University of Strathclyde, UK) and Dr Lucas Richert (University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA) This article collection will examine how the relationship between socioeconomic factors and mental health has been and is understood in an array of different places and periods.
Although much of the focus of current mental health research and clinical practice is on the neurological aspects of mental illness and psychopharmacological treatment, historical research demonstrates that a wide range of factors — from vitamin deficiencies such as pellagra, and infections such as syphilis to traumatic life events — have contributed to the onset and exacerbation of mental health problems.
Topics that the collection hopes to cover include: Editors: Rosa Lombardi (Sapienza University of Rome, Italy) and Paola Paoloni (Niccolo' Cusano University, Rome, Italy).
