Abstract

This guide was designed to help you develop a process for assisting and supporting the return to work of employees who have been absent from work for mental health reasons, ultimately to facilitate their recovery and return to work.

It is a practical guide that spells out both individual support strategies and organizational changes that can be made. It is intended for company executives and managers, human resources departments, and union groups concerned about workers’ health and job retention, but also for practitioners in the workplace, particularly physicians, occupational health professionals, company psychologists, and rehabilitation counsellors.
