    Abstract

    Most people with a mental health condition want to be gainfully employed (Social Exclusion Unit, 2004 p.4). The right to work is enshrined in Article 23 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states 'everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.'(UN, 1948) Yet this remains a right that is too often denied to people with a mental health condition.

    This literature offers a brief overview of the steps taken by government in supporting adults with mental health issues into the workplace. It also focuses on the role of the mental health social worker and the support they may provide to the individual within this situation.
