Harper, D. 2011. No, we're not 'all in this together'! Asylum: the Magazine for Democratic Psychiatry. 18 (1), p. 4.
Opinion piece pointing out that for those who already experience mental distress, a recession causes further problems. They will find it harder to find work which might help their recovery; and, with huge cuts in welfare provision, they will receive less support. There is a strong link between poverty and unemployment and increased mental health problems like depression or suicide. As well as an increased demand for benefits, the recession will increase pressure on charities and mental health services.
