After the onset of a mental disorder has occurred, there are limited treatment possibilities and even fewer options to revise the illness course. This makes it difficult for an individual to improve the outcome of their mental disorder. Consequently, prevention is the most promising way to reduce the risk of mental illness. 

The most prevalent preventive interventions are psychological and psychoeducational. Psychological interventions are aimed at modifying behaviours, cognitions and emotions through different types of psychotherapeutic techniques. Alternatively, psychoeducational interventions provide information and support to the individual to help them better understand and cope with their illness through the use of conferences, videos, lectures and newsletters.

The onset of depression and anxiety is influenced by a wide range of biological, psychological and social factors that occur in different stages of people's lives. As a result of these variances, treatments for depression and anxiety are often not provided adequately. 

It is widely accepted that the precursors to mental illness are varied and complex,  and an early diagnosis is critical for intervention and prevention. Evidence points to lifestyle behavioural risk factors – particularly diet and physical activity – as targets for prevention of depression and anxiety among adolescents and adults.
