    Mental Health and Work: Austria

    Tackling mental ill-health of the working-age population is becoming a key issue for labour market and social policies in OECD countries. OECD governments increasingly recognise that policy has a major role to play in keeping people with mental ill-health in employment or bringing those outside of the labour market back to it, and in preventing mental illness. This report on Austria is the eighth in a series of reports looking at how the broader education, health, social and labour market policy challenges identified in Sick on the Job? Myths and Realities about Mental Health and Work (OECD, 2012) are being tackled in a number of OECD countries. It concludes that the Austrian system provides good opportunities in principle for improving labour market inclusion of people with mental ill-health but that structural fragmentation of responsibilities limits the means of the federal government to develop coherent health and work policies. Successful structural reform requires including a range of actors responsible for policy implementation to achieve coordination across institutions and better integrated service delivery.

    Santé mentale et insertion professionnelle - De la théorie à la pratique

    La mauvaise santé mentale fait payer un lourd tribut aux personnes concernées, aux entreprises et à l’économie de manière générale. Les problèmes de santé mentale sont à l’origine d’une perte très importante de l’offre potentielle de main-d’œuvre, de taux élevés de chômage et engendrent des absences maladie et une baisse de productivité au travail. Ce rapport de synthèse, qui fait suite à un rapport introductif (« Mal-être au travail ? Mythes et réalités sur la santé mentale et l'emploi ») et à neuf études par pays, propose un résumé des résultats recueillis dans les pays qui ont participé à l’étude et avance des arguments en faveur d’une intervention plus forte des pouvoirs publics.
