Mental Health & Work

Work is central to many people’s lives and identities. Quality and meaningful work can have a positive impact on mental health and well-being and community inclusion. It can also be an important step on the road to recovery for many.

 

The work of Mental Health Europe focuses on workplace settings and employment. We advocate for an inclusive European labour market where mental health and well-being are prompted in the workplace, and where people experiencing mental ill-health are supported to return to work when they are ready’.

 

Through its work on human rights and social policy, Mental Health Europe promotes the economic and social case for good mental health in the workplace and the inclusion of persons with psychosocial disabilities in the labour market.

 

MHE is also an active member of the European Alliance for Mental Health – Employment & Work.
