Overview

How and why does the social and physical environment matter for mental health and psychological wellbeing in human populations?
In this book, this question is examined from a number of different points of view, but with a particular emphasis on ideas and research from health geography. It shows that health geography makes a distinctive focus on the interactions between people and their social and physical environment, and in the ways that it conceptualises space and place.
