Employment

For people experiencing mental health issues, having a paid job is a key part of getting and staying well.

International evidence shows that for people experiencing mental health issues, having a paid job is a key part of getting and staying well.

Around 600,000 people in the working age population are affected by a mental health issue. Te Pou estimates that of these people, around 400,000 will be in employment and around 200,000 will be out of employment.

Te Pou supports a number of projects to increase access to evidence based supported employment services in New Zealand.
