Detail

We want to help more people with mental health problems back into work and, through work, to improve their well-being.

In summer 2011 the Minister for Welfare Reform invited representatives from each Work Programme, specialist employment providers and mental health services to work together to promote practical actions to join up employment and mental health support.

In November 2011 they made a public pledge to work together to improve work and well-being for unemployed people.

They have put together guidance to help employment advisers spot when jobseekers with mental health needs could benefit from well-being support.
