Facts Sheets and Scenarios for Employers: Job Accommodations for Employees with Mental Health Conditions

Vasco N. is a young adult who is dealing with his depression, anxiety and also the adjustments of moving to a new city where he has no friends. He has begun a job in a museum where he is expected to gather data about the new acquisitions catalog them and communicate information in different formats to different departments. He also has a number of other related tasks. He is doing well as far as relating to others in the museum but is feeling overwhelmed by the complexity of the job and feels that the learning curve is too high for him. He is also feeling very lonely and does not know what to do at breaks and lunch when others are socializing. He confides in his employment counselor that he wants to quit because he is too “stressed out” and does not feel like he is doing a good job. At the same time he has some excellent ideas about how to make some changes that would help him to reduce his anxiety and do a better job. A final issue to be addressed is that Vasco is very tired, both from his medications and his schedule. He had to get up at 6:00 a.m. in order to get the bus that would get him to work by 8:30. If he took a bus half an hour later, he would be able to sleep an additional 1.5 hours.

Mental Health Conditions and Hyperthyroidism

Mental Health Conditions and Hyperthyroidism

Several of these reports also demonstrate improvement in, but not complete resolution of, psychiatric symptoms after treatment of the underlying thyroid condition. Many of these individuals continued to require monitoring for persistent, albeit less severe, psychiatric symptoms. 3,4 There have also been attempts to evaluate the prevalence of neuropsychiatric symptoms in individuals fi rst diagnosed with Graves ’ disease through case control studies, with those with higher levels of depression and anxiety being compared with controls. 12 Although there is evidence to suggest that these symptoms abate with appropriate treatment of the underlying condition, 13 others demonstrate persistence of hyperactive behavior up to 6 months after the start of treatment. 14 Although this information provides evidence to support a link between mental health conditions (MHCs) and thyroid disturbances, these studies have mostly consisted of case reports in the pediatric population and a few larger case series in adults. 3,9–13 Larger-scale pediatric studies evaluating the presence of mental health diagnoses in patients with hyperthyroidism would be valuable to help inform primary care providers and specialists in their assessment of patients presenting with

Maintaining employment and improving health: a qualitative exploration of a job retention programme for employees with mental health conditions

Maintaining employment and improving health: a qualitative exploration of a job retention programme for employees with mental health conditions

At the moment, job retention programmes are not commonplace and indeed their provision is patchy and not routinely evaluated or monitored. Conclusions The workplace health and well-being agenda has become a prominent feature in UK policy discourse. Wellbeing at work concerns, amongst other things, individuals’ ability to work productively and creatively, to engage in strong and positive relationships, fulfilment of personal and social goals, contribution to community and a sense of purpose (Dewe and Kompier, 2008). Despite policy intentions, a proportion of the work age population in the UK experience symptoms with mental ill health (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2008) which frequently results in negative outcomes for individuals and employing organisations. This paper reported qualitative findings from a job retention service which sought to enable people with mental health conditions to retain their employment status (if this outcome is appropriate for the employee). To date, the evidence-base for such programmes is limited which makes drawing concrete conclusions about their effectiveness and transferability challenging. Albeit with a modest sample of twenty eight key stakeholders involved in one job retention service in Northern England, the paper has outlined the way by which such services support individuals and has highlighted key mechanisms which contribute to successful outcomes for service users. The paper suggests that job retention models make an important contribution to both employees with mental health conditions and to employers, but that further evidence is required to support health providers and businesses of the benefits of commissioning such services.

Long-term conditions and mental health

Long-term conditions and mental health

n Use CQUINs and other targeted quality incentives to encourage providers to develop innovative forms of liaison psychiatry within acute hospitals. Implications for service providers There is a compelling financial and quality case for service providers to make mental health assessment among people with long-term conditions mainstream, and to improve the support provided to those identified as having mental health needs. Professionals in both primary and secondary care need to be given the opportunity to develop basic mental health skills appropriate to the setting they work in. A number of training programmes and consultation tools are available to support this, and the provision of such training should become a standard responsibility of liaison psychiatry services and other mental health teams that come into regular contact with non-mental health professionals.

Genetic Testing for Mental Health Conditions

Genetic Testing for Mental Health Conditions

pharmacogenomics test results and report on the management of psychotropic medications used for major depressive disorder in an outpatient psychiatric practice. (94) Two-hundred twenty seven patients with major depressive disorder were enrolled and grouped consecutively into a “guided” group (n=113) or “unguided” group (n=114). All subjects had DNA samples collected and sent for the GeneSight test. Based on results from patients’ genotypes for CYP2D6, CYP2C19, CYP1A2 , SLC6A4, and HTR2A, the test generates a “proprietary interpretive report” that included recommendations for “use as directed,” “use with caution,” or “use with caution and with more frequent monitoring” for each of 26 antidepressant and antipsychotic agents. Providers for patients in the “guided” group received the report from the GeneSight test report. Subjects were followed for 8 weeks; 93 patients in the unguided group and 72 patients in the guided group completed follow up. In an analysis of those patients who completed follow up, the authors found a greater reduction in symptoms for the guided group compared with the unguided group for the depression measures used: Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAMD-17; F=22.4, p<0.001)), the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology – Clinician Rated (QIDS-C16; F=29.7, p<0.0001), and the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9; F=7.07, p=0.002). Patients in the guided group had a higher rate of remission as measured by the QIDS-C16 than the unguided patients (26.4% vs. 12.9%; OR=2.42; 95% CI: 1.09 to 5.39; p=0.03). Patients in the guided group who were initially on a medication that was classified as “use with caution and with more frequent monitoring” were more likely than those with the same classification in the unguided group to have a medication change or dose adjustment during the study period (93.8% vs 55%, χ2= 6.35; p=0.01).

Mental Health and Development: Targeting People with Mental Health Conditions as a Vulnerable Group

Mental Health and Development: Targeting People with Mental Health Conditions as a Vulnerable Group

Targeting People with Mental Health Conditions as a Vulnerable Group. The report highlights the urgent need to redress the current situation. It presents compelling evidence that people with mental health conditions meet major criteria for vulnerability and yet fall through the cracks of development aid and government attention. It makes the case for reaching out to this vulnerable group through the design and implementation of appropriate policies and programmes and through the inclusion of mental health interventions into broader poverty reduction and development strategies. It also describes a number of key interventions which can provide a starting point for these efforts. This report is a call to action to all development stakeholders — multilateral agencies, bilateral agencies, global partnerships, private foundations, academic and research institutions, governments and civil society — to focus their attention on mental health.

Relationships between burnout, turnover intention, job satisfaction, job demands and job resources for mental health personnel in an Australian mental health service

Relationships between burnout, turnover intention, job satisfaction, job demands and job resources for mental health personnel in an Australian mental health service

Third, all measures were self-report. The absence of ob- jective measures of burnout or job characteristics is common to much research in this area, but does mean that individuals’ interpretations of their circumstances may vary and this may influence the overall results of this study. Additionally, the fact that participants for this study were drawn from only one mental health service means that results from this study may not be generalis- able to staff from other mental health services. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the data used in this study was cross-sectional only. This means that although relationships can be explored, it is not possible to infer causal directions between different variables. While it is hypothesised that varying levels of job demands and job resources lead to varying levels of burnout, the opposite may also be true. Those individuals who experience higher levels of burnout may perceive their work as more demanding and may perceive supports to be lower than employees who experience lower levels of burnout.

It must be acknowledged that both depression and anxiety are associated with a complex array of interrelated and intricate factors, which cannot all be captured in this study alone. A causal relationship between job characteristics and depression/anxiety could not been established due to the cross-sectional nature of the data. Longitudinal data is currently being generated by this study and it is hoped that analysis on these data will provide insights into the direction of these relationships and reveal any age effects in the association.

attributes and mental health. 2 In this paper we use di¤erent waves of the European Working Conditions Survey to document recent patterns in mental health at the workplace across European countries, and to assess how working conditions - such as shifts, repetitive work, job autonomy, job intensity and job complexity - a¤ect mental health. Second, in the light of the signi…cant di¤erences observed in mental health at work both between countries, as well as across labour market groups, we investigate the potential sources of these di¤erences accounting for demographic characteristics, …rm attributes, industry, occupational structure and the institutional context. While there is a lively debate among health economists and social scientists with respect to the validity of cross-country comparisons in self reported health, we do take a number of steps in this direction. In particular, given the concern that responses to mental health questions may di¤er across populations (i.e. due to past experience or cultural di¤erences), in the empirical analysis we test the robustness of our estimates in various ways and implement a methodology for di¤erential reporting in ordered response models which allows for threshold shifts. Next, since workers may sort across jobs according to their preferences and risk aversion, and …rms may choose their health and safety expenditures, we present estimates of the causal e¤ect of adverse working conditions on the probability of experiencing mental health problems accounting for di¤erent sources of endogeneity. Finally, we pay particular attention to the role of institutions, a much neglected issue. While most European countries have universal health coverage and a wide social safety net, they do di¤er in the degree of regulation of both health and safety at the workplace and labour market institutions. We show that the institutional environment is important to explain the di¤erences in mental health distress across countries. The policy implications of mental health conditions and work quality are also quite relevant, since mental health problems and

stack shelves.’ Similarly, Bret, a radio engineer, recounts: ‘I don’t think people associate mental illness with people who are functioning in high-status jobs... People associate mental illness with people who can’t work.’ With regards to these specific extracts, what is being suggested is that the societal view about mental illness operates as a ‘blanket discourse’ that overrides and colonises other work oriented subject positions, which is to say that the person is deemed to be, first and foremost, ‘mentally ill’. Consequently, the person with the MHC is portrayed within the workplace as someone who is incapable of adequately performing within the demanding parameters of skilled work or living up to neoliberal workplace expectations of optimal performance (Munro, 2012). However, what is also significant from the analysis is the way in which this pejorative notion of mental health goes beyond a stigmatised view of the ‘person with the MHC’, and actually casts a bigger shadow over common mental health experiences, such as transient stress or anxiety at work. Patrick, a university lecturer, states: ‘I have had conversations with people as if: “oh I don’t want people to know I am off on stress it makes me feel as if I am weak, you know” ... a lot of institutions maybe the more macho institutions that people have to work in are more like that, I think.’

illness, corresponding to the GHQ-12 score greater or equal to 6 8 . The cut-off for this more restrictive definition was chosen to yield an incidence similar to the proportion of people declaring that their mental health status limited their work activity in the Labour Force Survey (between 8 and 9 percent). The model also includes a very rich set of other control variables, consistent to the previous literature on this topic (Clark and Oswald, 1994; Winkelman and Winkelman, 1998), such as: physical health, highest educational qualification attained, number of children and age of the youngest child in the household, age, year and region binary variables. Income is measured as lagged yearly labour household income and current yearly non-labour income. Labour income is lagged, in order to avoid spurious correlations with job loss. The use of yearly income helps to smooth out effects of unusually high income receipt in any one month. Empirically, both yearly and monthly incomes produce very similar results. The complete list of independent variables is reported in Table 1. Table 2 provides descriptive statistics of the variables used in the analysis. Mental health is generally lower for women than men, as well as for people having long term health conditions or being unemployed.

Fit Mind, Fit Job. in Mental Health and Work

Fit Mind, Fit Job. in Mental Health and Work

It is strongly recommended but not obligatory for an employer to appoint an internal confidential counsellor who is thoroughly familiar with the company’s in-house workings. Outcomes An evaluation has revealed that the practical implementation of the legislation on well-being at work remains deficient. First, employers seldom carry out psychosocial risk analyses, chiefly because of the high cost involved and the resistance of employers who fear a negative analysis and the implications it may have on the organisation of work. Second, many employers are not aware of their legal obligations and the importance and advantages of prevention policies. Third, on the side of the employees, there is a lack of awareness of the role and existence of the psychosocial prevention advisors and confidential counsellors. Finally, prevention advisors have little to no time for the prevention of psychosocial risks in the workplace as they are fully occupied with individual complaints of harassment at work. They are not always trained to execute the wide range of possible risk assessments and prevention programmes, and are seldom familiar with the workplace. Because of the lack of financial incentives for employers to adapt the work and workplace, some are unwilling to co-operate, which discourages occupational health specialists from specialising in the field psychosocial risk prevention – less than 5% of prevention advisors are specialised in this field.

Stress, burnout, and job dissatisfaction in mental health workers

Stress, burnout, and job dissatisfaction in mental health workers

Stress, burnout, and job dissatisfaction in mental health workers Rössler, Wulf Abstract: As the industrial world has transformed toward a service economy, a particular interest has developed in mental health problems at the workplace. The risk for burnout is significantly increased in certain occupations, notably for health care workers. Beyond the effects of an extensive workload, many working hours, or long night shifts, the medical field has specific stressors. Physicians work in emotionally demanding environments with patients, families, or other medical staff. They must make quick decisions while faced with a quite frequent information overload. All of these stressors have to be weighed against a rapidly changing organizational context within medicine. Today, economics objectives have priority over medical values in health care. In principal, mental health workers should experience similar work stressors and the same contextual factors as health professionals from other medical disciplines. However, several studies have identified stressors that are unique to the psychiatric profession. These challenges range from the stigma of this profession, to particularly demanding relationships with patients and difficult interactions with other mental health professionals as part of multidisciplinary teams to personal threats from violent patients. Other sources of stress are a lack of positive feedback, low pay, and a poor work environment. Finally, patient suicide is a major stressor, upon which a majority of mental health workers report post-traumatic stress symptoms.

Job loss and the mental health of spouses and adolescent children

Job loss and the mental health of spouses and adolescent children

The objective of this paper is to fill this void in the literature by using nationally rep- resentative household panel data to assess the implications of involuntary job loss for the mental health of family members. We make an important contribution in focusing specifically on the disparity in mental health outcomes following job loss in those fam- ilies experiencing (i) continued non-employment, (ii) financial stress, and (iii) relation- ship dissatisfaction. Although we do not estimate mediating effects directly, this focus on heterogeneity in mental health impacts sheds light on the potential pathways through which job loss affects family members. Further, while there is a small literature on the link between partners ’ job loss and their spouses ’ mental health, ours is the first study to also analyse the broader impact of men’s and women’s job loss on the mental health of their adolescent and young-adult children. Finally, we employ fixed effects models rich in controls in order to account for any selection on observable or time- invariant unobservable individual or family characteristics. We deal with any remaining concerns about the potential endogeneity of job loss by utilising a measure of involun- tary job loss, which we argue has certain advantages over other job loss measures used previously in the literature. The robustness of our findings is then tested using an al- ternative measure of job loss that is both unexpected and involuntary. Together, these innovations allow us to add estimates that are more plausibly causal to what is largely a correlational literature.
