1 Social circumstances and health

2 Deprivation in 1981

3 Deprivation in 1991

4 Deprivation in 2001

5 Excess Standardised Mortality not explained by deprivation (Scotland v. E&W)

6 Past experiences:Castlemilk  ≥ £244.5m spent over 10 yrs to 2000 u Major impact on physical environment u Population decline – but stabilised u 18% reduction of FTE jobs, though higher employment rate u Rise in % with LLT illness (from 21% in ’91 to 32% in ’01). Glasgow figs 19% to 26%.

24 A classification of stress u Positive – tolerable and short lived. Caused by everyday experiences such as meeting new people, frustration and coping with normal discipline. - Concept of “Serve and return” u Tolerable – could affect brain structure but relieved by supportive relationships. Natural disasters, loss of a loved one u Toxic – prolonged, highly active stress response. Associated with abuse, enduring maternal depression, neglect. Absence of continuing supportive relationships fails to build resilience B S McEwen et al 2007


26 Psobid u Psychological u Sociological and u Biological u Indicators of u Disease

27 The Dunedin cohort u 1000 children recruited in late 1972/3 u At age 3, “at risk” children identified on the basis of chaotic circumstances, emotional behaviour, negativity and poor attentiveness u As adults, those “at risk” were more likely to : –be unemployed –have criminal convictions (especially for violence) –been pregnant as a teenager –have a substance abuse problem –exhibit signs of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome

28 Some early years programmes u Nurse Family Partnership u Infant health and development programme u Perry High/Scope project u Early training project u Carolina Abcderian project u Milwaukee project u The Experience Corps u Pedagogues in Scandinavia u Sure Start in England

29 Cost benefit of early intervention programmes A Sinclair The Work Foundation 2007

30 Conclusions u Clear evidence that adverse early life circumstances have distinct biological effects u Some evidence that some early life support projects can improve health, social and economic prospects for children u Successful projects foster engagement between children, their peers and adults in a way that is appropriate to their stage of development u Projects are often poorly evaluated and reports seldom published in peer reviewed literature u Evidence of effectiveness is crucial to influence policy

31 “We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.” Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet, 1694–1778) was responding to the flowering of ideas in eighteenth century Scotland that has become known as ‘The Scottish Enlightenment’..
