The Review Team commissioned this supplementary report because mental health problems have a greater impact on people’s ability to work than any other group of disorders. Mental ill health affects the productivity of those in work by impairing their ability to function at full capacity and it causes about 40% of all days lost through sickness absence (Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health, 2007). It also accounts for 40% of those claiming incapacity Benefit and 23% of new claimants of Disability Living Allowance. This review investigates a number of mental health disorders as related to job performance. Return to work following mental illness is discussed, with recommendations for reducing sickness absence and the introduction of interventions. Systems, services and policies associated with mental health are also discussed in detail.
