|Summary / Abstract|
In 2006, the Scottish Association for Mental Health published a report, What’s It Worth?, which presented high-level estimates of the social and economic costs of mental health problems in Scotland for the year 2004/05.
What’s it Worth Now? updates the estimates of social and economic costs given in that publication, with a particular focus on the employment-related costs of mental ill health, both in work and out of work. The report also reviews the main policies, interventions and other actions that the available evidence shows to be effective in reducing the scale of these work-related costs.
