This brief summarises key findings and recommendations from a report that explores proposals to improve employment and health outcomes for people with common mental health problems. The study, based on used targeted literature reviews, key informant interviews and stakeholder consultations, has developed policy options for the Government to consider, including: embed vocational support based on the individual placement and support model in the improving access to psychological therapies programme; use the jobs II model of group-work to build resilience to setbacks that benefit claimants face when job-seeking; provide access to online mental health and work assessments and support; and combine telephone-based psychological and employment-related support.
