This study looks at the role that symptoms associated with depression can have on an individual’s ability to find a job, or remain in employment. We also explore the evidence around which interventions and support might improve employment outcomes for people experiencing these symptoms, and make a series of recommendations about we might enhance employment outcomes for this group.

Guidance

From September 2013, young people on or about to start the work experience placement of a supported internship, or traineeship with a disability or health condition, can apply to the Department for Work and Pensions' Access to Work fund. Young people can apply for: * funding of travel (providing assistance for additional travel costs to and from their work experience placement because of their disability); * the costs of support workers, including job coaches; and * specialist equipment for days that a young person is at the employer's premises.
