Common Mental Health conditions affect a large number of people of working age and they are a significant cause of absence from work. Evidence suggests that mental health problems can also cause lower productivity while employees are attending work, known as 'presenteeism'.

Research suggests that being in work can have enormous benefits for people with mild to moderate mental health problems. The longer that somebody is absent from work, the less likely they are to return. This highlights the need for early intervention whilst the individual is still employed.

Therefore it is important that the Steps 2 Wellbeing Service works closely with individuals, employers and other third sector organisations to ensure individuals with mental health problems are able to either remain at work or return to work.
