Mental health problems are on the rise in the western world. Suicide is now the leading cause of death in men under 50. Myriad factors contribute to the development of mental illness in any given individual but Professor Kate Pickett and Professor Richard Wilkinson point the finger at inequality and its correlation with stress.
