OP147 Educational Costs And Benefits Of Mental Health Interventions

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  31 December 2019

Abstract

Introduction

The burden of mental health disorders has a wide societal impact affecting primarily individuals and their significant others. Mental health interventions produce costs and benefits in the health care sector but can also lead to costs and benefits in non-healthcare sectors, also known as inter-sectoral costs and benefits (ICBs). The aim of this study was to develop an internationally applicable list of ICBs in the educational sector resulting from mental health interventions and to facilitate the inclusion of ICBs in economic evaluations across the European Union (EU) by prioritizing important ICBs.

Methods

Some ICBs of mental health interventions were identified in earlier research, which were used as a basis for this study. Additional data was collected via a systematic literature search of PubMed and a grey literature search carried out in six EU countries. In order to validate the international applicability of the list and prioritize the ICBs, a survey was conducted with the international group of experts from the educational sector. The outcomes of the expert survey were used to create the condensed list containing the most important ICBs.

Results

The literature search allowed identifying additional ICBs and creating a comprehensive list of items. In order to improve its usability, a multi-dimensional list was constructed distinguishing between tangible (i.e. special education) and intangible items (i.e. cognitive deficits). Based on the expert survey, the international applicability of the list was validated and the most important ICBs from the economic perspective were determined.

Conclusions

Mental health interventions can affect a large number of educational facilities. The list of ICBs developed in this study could be used to select relevant educational facilities for economic evaluations of specific mental health disorders. Further research is needed to define, measure, and valuate the identified ICBs in order to facilitate the practical application of the list in economic evaluations.
