Project description
The aim of the current study is to examine the impact of specific mental health disorders to future employment and income, and the extent to which low income and unemployment increase the risk of mental disorder. In addition, the aim is to examine whether and how soon individuals with mental disorders return to work. Current study will use unique register-based data that contains comprehensive details of all individuals living in Finland from 1994 to 2014. Results of the current study results may be applied in designing mental health promotion and intervention programs.
