Why talk of illness entrenches discrimination

Journal article citation:
Mental Health and Social Inclusion, 18(2), 2014, pp.68-76.
Publisher:

Biological understandings of mental illness are promoted by both anti-stigma campaigners and increasingly by activists protesting against social security cuts. This paper analyses the pitfalls of the 'illness' conceptualisation for reducing discrimination, comments on divisions between those arguing for a right to work and those who seek a right not to work, and proposes bridge building and more effective messages, drawing on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It reviews relevant evidence on the effectiveness or lack of it of the 'mental illness is an illness like any other' message in anti-stigma work, and discussion of grey literature from campaigners and bloggers. There is a growing body of evidence that the 'illness like any other' message entrenches rather than reduces stigma and discrimination: this message should not be used in anti-discrimination work. At the same time some social security bloggers and campaigners have argued they are 'sick' in order to resist efforts to compel them to seek work or face sanctions; whilst older disability rights campaigners have argued for the right to work. The paper argues for new bridge building and use of evidence based messages in campaigning. (Edited publisher abstract)

A companion report to The Work Foundation’s review of research evidence on peer support in employment, this report identifies practice examples of peer support to help people with long term health conditions or disabilities to secure, retain or progress in employment. Based on a survey and interviews the report identified over 50 practice examples. The Practice Review discusses different approaches under the following headings: who is involved and benefiting; the purpose of the initiatives (recruitment, retention, progression, and wider outcomes); and the type of approach used (on-to-one, support groups, paid or unpaid). It then highlights the impact of the practice examples, including evidence on outcomes. Practice Review finds promising peer support practice in relation to securing, retaining and progressing in employment, for disabled people generally and for people living with specific impairments. It also found a high demand for peer support, and those involved in the report found peer support for employment offers hope, additional confidence and a sense of achievement. The report makes recommendations to support and strengthen the practice of peer support for disabled people or those with long-term conditions in terms of employment. (Edited publisher abstract)
