    Abstract

    The aim of this report is to provide an overview of the social determinants of inequities in mental wellbeing in children and adolescents, to provide evidence on interventions which address inequitiesin wellbeing and to identify the evidence and conceptual gaps. We use the VicHealth Framework for Health Equity to identify points of entry at three layers of influence: (i) individual and family health-related factors, (ii) daily living conditions and (iii) the socioeconomic, cultural and political context. Our hope is that this report will serve as a resource for policy makers and practitioners to reduce inequities by addressing the social determinants of mental wellbeing in children and adolescents.
