Mental health problems account for nearly a third of all early deaths from accidental or external means, and our record is not good in the area of treatment. The high suicide rate New Zealand has compared to countries we consider our peers has been well publicised. Although New Zealand has a high labour market participation rate, and good health of all kinds is clearly important to being able to work, it is sometimes not well understood just how important work is to mental health. Here you can find the 'Mental Health and Work: New Zealand' OECD Assessment and Recommendations. It is a good digest especially for people interested in managing mental health treatment issues in income protection claims processes, or product design.
