Work or other meaningful activity is an essential component of recovery. That’s why I applaud the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) for focusing on mental health in the workplace on World Mental Health Day, October 10, 2017. In conjunction with the event, the WFMH released a comprehensive report looking at the issue from the perspective of workers, employers, and the world economy. Supporting people in entering or remaining in the workforce boosts the economy and reduces societal costs, and helps people maintain recovery.
