Mental Health and Work in the UK - the launch of the OECD Report
Monday, 10 February 2014
09:00 - 12:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London SW1 0AD
Tackling mental ill-health of the working-age population has become a key issue for labour market and social policies in many OECD countries. It is an issue that has been neglected for too long despite creating very high and increasing costs to people and society at large. This report on the United Kingdom is one in a series of reports looking at how these policy challenges are being tackled in selected OECD countries, covering issues such as the role of the workplace, the institutions providing employment services for jobseekers, the transition into permanent disability and the capacity of the health system.
This event included both a Working Seminar to discuss the UK report and its implications and a Press Launch to bring the key findings and recommendations & the UK Government response to the attention of the broadcast and print media.
