Background: The prevention of mental disorders is feasible, but a broader implementation requires a more precise application of available interventions to target populations. aim: A literature review of the different approaches where preventive measures are applied more precisely and personally. 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.
