Breaking the Link between Mental Health and Labour Exclusion in Europe: Towards an EU-Wide Action Plan
04/04/2012 - Submitted by: Tilia Bousios
Mental ill-health accounts for almost 20% of illnesses in Europe and mental health problems affect one in four people at some point in their life. This has a wider impact when mental ill-health leads to work absenteeism or the inability to find employment.
This International Symposium provides an invaluable opportunity to highlight the link between mental ill-health, social exclusion and exclusion from the labour market. Much is now known about what works in mental health promotion, prevention, care and treatment but the challenge now lies in implementing this knowledge.
