METHOD A narrative review of existing literature. RESULTS Several promisingstrategiestoimproveprecisionandpersonalisationofpreventionareindeedavailable, but there is insufficient research to substantiate them. conclusion: Prevention of mental health disorders is possible, and there are interventions proven to be effective. In order to have an actual impact at population level, we require a mix of universal, selective and indication-based preventive measures.The universal campaigns, aimed at the entire population, would hereby create conditions enabling the other strategies, aimed at risk groups, to succeed.
