Mental Health and Work is a 2014 report, published by the OECD and is available through the OECD iLibrary.

The costs of mental ill-health for individuals, employers and society at large are enormous.

Mental illness is responsible for a very significant loss of potential labour supply, high rates of unemployment, and a high incidence of sickness, absence and reduced productivity at work.

This series offers both a general overview of the main challenges and barriers to better integrating people with mental illness in the world of work, as well as a close look at the situation in specific OECD countries.
