Schizophrenia and employment
The Work Foundation has published a report about the impact of schizophrenia on working life years. Only 8% of people with schizophrenia are in paid employment. A preview of the findings was presented to a selective audience at parliament on 6 February 2013.
The report captures:
• the impact of schizophrenia, including quality of life and work capacity;
• societal attitudes that aid or prevent employment opportunities;
• interventions that may help improve labour market participation;
• policy recommendations
