Über diesen Titel

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

From the Back Cover:

There is longstanding interest in the relationship between mental health and work. Based on new data, this book challenges much of the conventional wisdom in this area. It suggests that the impact of neoliberal social and economic activity in the UK over recent years has meant the return of potentially debilitating forms of subjugation and exploitation. More people now struggle for fewer jobs of increasing intensity, reduced legal protection and lower real wages.

In addition, recent years have witnessed the implementation of unenforceable health and safety management standards and recommendations to guide workplace organisation. A key consequence of this approach has been the implementation of cultures of mental health replete with practices of discipline, control and identity configuration, with greater emphasis on productivity at the cost of mental wellbeing. This book outlines the way in which the lived experiences of mental health often fail to accord with modern industrial and corporate visions of acceptable personhood. In doing so, it questions the fundamental and largely accepted cultural maxim that work is unquestionably good for people with mental health difficulties.
