Job retention practitioner's handbook
Work is universally seen as an important tool in supporting people's mental health, but what happens when work itself impacts upon a person's wellbeing? City and Hackney Mind has brought together four of the leading specialists in the fields of mental health and employment, drawing on their vast experiences to produce the 'Job retention practitioner's handbook'.
This essential guide, rich in relevant resources and appendices, represents a complex area of work about how to keep work. Backing up their logic with analysis, case histories and figures, the authors illustrate the stages of intervention and support which may ease the road ahead for both individual and small business in a variety of circumstances.
Laid out in clear and easy-to-read sections and packed with helpful definitions and examples, this guide gives a taster of the complexities and good practices of the case management approach to supporting people in work.This handbook provides templates and relevant resources to support a healthy workplace, enabling the budding practitioner to provide effective support to both employers and employees.
This is the perfect starting point for those interested in maintaining people's health within employment, including clinicians, HR specialists and employment advisers. It also provides the framework for future commissioning and as such should be seen as essential reading for current commissioners of services and the new GP consortiums.
