Mental illness is responsible for a very significant loss of potential labour supply, high rates of unemployment, and a high incidence of sickness absence and reduced productivity at work. Following an introductory report and nine country reports, this final synthesis report summarises the findings from the participating countries and makes the case for a stronger policy response.
Includes chapters on:
- Assessment and conclusions - The OECD mental health and work policy framework
- Mental health and work: The case for a stronger policy response
- Ensuring educational attainment and school-to-work transition for young people with mental ill-health
- Creating employment-oriented mental health care systems
- From workplace stress prevention to employer incentives and support for workers with mental health problems
- Improving benefit systems and employment services for jobseekers with mental ill-health.
