Download (829.09 kB)

This research review comprehensively examines and summarises the findings of Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health (CRE-DH) on employment and mental health among people with disability and generates a series of policy recommendations.

To better understand our research findings, we use the Disabling Working Environments framework to conceptualise the range of experiences people with disability encounter when they enter the labour force, work in jobs, and leave employment and examine the impact of these experiences on mental health, acknowledging the impact of personal (e.g., age, education) and environmental (e.g., availability of jobs, access to health services, discrimination) factors.
