All of us have the right to decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. For persons with mental health problems, achieving this right is particularly challenging. The importance of work in enhancing the economic and social integration of people with mental health problems is highlighted in this monograph.

Using instruments that allow us to see not how people die but rather how they live (1), we now know that the problems of mental illness loom large around the world. It accounts for 12% of all disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs), and 23%in high-income countries.
Five of the 10 leading causes of disability worldwide are mental problems (major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, alcohol use and obsessive-compulsive disorders). These disorders – together with anxiety, depression and stress –have a definitive impact on any working population and should be addressed within that context. They may also develop into long-term disorders with accompanying forms of disability. (From Author)
