National Strategy for Mental Health and Employment

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions when she expects to publish the National Strategy for Mental Health and Employment; and if she will make a statement. (294501)

[holding answer 20 October 2009]: We recognise the particular employment challenges faced by people who have mental health conditions and the importance of promoting good mental health and well-being across the whole population from early years and throughout working lives. We have been working across Government to develop the national mental health and employment strategy to address both of these issues. It is now nearing readiness, and will be published later this year.
