Inhaltsangabe: Based on recent data gathered from employees and managers, Work and the Mental Health Crisis in Britain challenges the cultural maxim that work benefits people with mental health difficulties, and illustrates how particular cultures and perceptions can contribute to a crisis of mental well?being at work.

  • Based on totally new data gathered from employees and managers in the UK
  • Presents a challenge to much of the conventional wisdom surrounding work and mental health
  • Questions the fundamental and largely accepted cultural maxim that work is unquestionably good for people with mental health difficulties
  • Illustrates how particular cultures of work or perceptions of the experience of work contribute to a crisis of mental well?being at work
  • Fills a need for an up?to?date, detailed work that explores the ways that mental health and work experiences are constructed, negotiated, constrained and at times, marginalised
  • Written in a style that is detailed and informative for academics and professionals who work in the mental health sphere, but also accessible to interested lay readers

Rezension: With the costs of mental ill health and stress in the workplace estimated at nearly £27m per annum in terms of sickness absence and presenteeism, work, health and wellbeing has become a major business issue. The Foresight Report on Mental Capital and Wellbeing (Cooper et al  [2009], Wiley?Blackwell) and Dame Carol Black s work and health report, have both emphasized what this excellent and timely book is arguing: that working people are suffering and something needs to be done.
Cary L. Cooper , Distinguished Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health, Lancaster University Management School, UK

Set in the context of a critique of neo liberal political economy, this book should be read by all those who hold up work as a means to improved well?being, without due regard to what kind of work is available to those for whom it is prescribed.
Theo Nichols, Distinguished Research Professor, Cardiff University, UK
