Primary prevention refers to efforts to prevent mental illnesses before they occur. These efforts aim to increase access to quality health care, education, and parenting classes—these factors can help protect individuals against experiencing mental illness. Psychotherapy, medical interventions (e.g. medications), and group therapy are all examples of intervention, not primary prevention.
