OECD Mental Health and Work Project



The OECD Mental Health and Work Project is part of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and evaluates policy on mental health and work for selected OECD countries, identifying good and bad practices and reform necessities. Two reports have been released on this issue: the introductory report "Sick on the Job? Myths and Realities about Mental Health and Work" and the final report "Fit Mind, Fit Job - From Evidence to Practice in Mental Health and Work". The data include indicators such as employment rates for the mentally ill, productivity loss through mental ill-health and the costs of mental ill-health. Here we focus on statistical data.
