Summary

The percentage point difference between the rate of employment in the general population of working age (16-64) and the rate of employment amongst adults of working age with a mental illness.

This indicator measures the extent to which people with mental illness are able to live as normal a life as possible by looking at their levels of employment. This indicator is to ensure that mental illness is not excluded due to an overriding focus on physical health.
