Purpose of Review
We review recent community interventions to promote mental health and social equity.
We define community interventions as those that involve multi-sector partnerships,
emphasize community members as integral to the intervention, and/or deliver services
in community settings. We examine literature in seven topic areas: collaborative care,
early psychosis, school-based interventions, homelessness, criminal justice,
global mental health, and mental health promotion/prevention.
We adapt the social-ecological model for health promotion and provide a framework for understanding the actions of community interventions.
There are recent examples of effective interventions in each topic area.
The majority of interventions focus on individual, family/interpersonal,
and program/institutional social-ecological levels, with few intervening
on whole communities or involving multiple non-healthcare sectors.
Findings from many studies reinforce the interplay among mental health,
interpersonal relationships, and social determinants of health.
There is evidence for the effectiveness of community interventions for
improving mental health and some social outcomes across social-ecological
levels. Studies indicate the importance of ongoing resources and training to
maintain long-term outcomes, explicit attention to ethics and processes to
foster equitable partnerships, and policy reform to support sustainable
