Coronel Institute of Occupational Health

Knowledge has been building about the adverse effects of mental health disorders in the workplace, from absenteeism and long-term work disability to poorer work functioning while present at work (presenteeism). In this plenary, Coronel Institute of Occupational Health assistant professor Karen Nieuwenhuijsen looks at a variety of intervention studies on mental health problems. She discusses the challenges they faced and shares evaluations of stay-at-work and return-at-work strategies for workers with mental health disorders.
