'Vocational interventions for young people with mental Ill-health'

Like their peers, most young people with mental ill-health want to work and/or study. For a variety of reasons however, the outcome of meaningful paid employment, vocational training and/or higher education may not be achieved by a significant proportion. This Research Bulletin considers the evidence regarding the reasons for impaired vocational outcomes in young people with mental ill-health and how education and employment opportunities can be both enhanced and ultimately fulfilled as part of mental health care and treatment.
