Hundreds of thousands of people at work face ignorance, prejudice and stigma because of mental health problems. Even more – who are both able and willing to work – cannot get a job if they have or have had a mental health problem because of discrimination by employers. This goes on even though it is illegal under the Disability Discrimination Act.
This booklet has been published to help trade union reps and officials provide a good service to members with mental health problems. It aims to equip reps with the information they need to deal as well with mental health issues as they do with other issues that crop up on a daily basis.
