Mental health and well-being at the workplace

Protection and inclusion in challenging times
Both the Mental Health Declaration for Europe and Mental Health Action Plan for Europe and the European Pact for Mental Health and Well-being recognize the importance of mental health and well-being and prevention of mental health problems at the workplace as well as overcoming stigma, discrimination and reintegration. The reasons are easy to explain.
Globally, mental disorders are leading causes of disability. In some high-income countries, as much as 40% of disability can be attributed to mental disorders. In the WHO European Region, depression alone causes 13.7% of all years lived with disability, the leading cause. Alcohol disorders are ranked second with 6.2%, and schizophrenia and bipolar disorders, much rarer but often lasting many years, rank numbers 11 and 12 respectively with just over 2% each. It is no surprise that policy-makers are concerned about the effects of mental disorders on society and on the economy.
