New study finds link between home ownership and mental health

Sep 23, 2020 07:26 IST

Children growing up in expensive homes have fewer mental health issues than those who grow up in cheaper homes, according to a new study by researchers from University College London (UCL). As part of the Millennium Cohort Study in Britain, researchers analysed 8,500 children, born around the year 2000.

It further adds that children from expensive homes tend to get along well with their peers and have fewer instances of low mood and anxiety.

Their study raised concerns that the falling rate of home ownership and the increase in renting a home could worsen the already existing gap in mental health between children.
