There is evidence from several sources that psychiatric disorders and positive mental wellbeing show life course trajectories; and much is being elucidated about the predictors of these trajectories. 

In this talk I will draw mainly on evidence from the adult British birth cohorts, with a focus on Common Mental Disorder (anxiety and depression), externalising problems, cognitive function, and positive wellbeing.

Presented by: Professor Marcus Richards
