Abstract

Meaningful occupation is a human need recognised universally and throughout the ages. Indeed, some societies see work not merely as a practical necessity but as a social imperative. In this respect, however, people with severe mental health problems (like those with other forms of disability) are at a disadvantage, being much less likely to be in paid employment than people with no form of disability.
