Neighborhoods and Mental Health

It is important that we study human behavior and well-being in these contexts and move away from the traditional laboratory research that dominated much of the social sciences a few decades ago. As research into and understanding around mental health grows, particularly beyond the walls of the hospital spaces, environmental psychology plays a key role in developing that work. Neighborhood and mental health studies demonstrate that neighborhoods remain important contexts in our everyday lives and have an independent effect on our well-being. This type of research is particularly relevant for urban design and policy efforts to create healthier neighborhoods.
