Conclusions

Hardly any prevention studies have shown an unequivocal reduction in subsequent psychiatric disorder in childhood or adult life (or been designed to do so) in children who do not have disorders. But there is increasing evidence that long-term gains in mental health, psychosocial development, and social functioning can result from interventions that are selective, early, intensive, multimodal, persistent, and participative, and that involve outreach. The distinction between prevention and treatment is blurred. The contribution of treatment services to the reduction in population morbidity is beginning to be evaluated, but early signs are that it will come to a similar conclusion. Once effectiveness in limiting psychiatric morbidity in children is established, questions will follow as to whether adverse effects outweigh benefit and whether the financial cost is warranted compared with an alternative policy of increased expenditure on treatment services.
