Occupational Mental Health—A Neglected Service

  • W. E. Mickleburgh (a1)

Abstract

There is insufficient information on the prevalence of psychological morbidity in the workplace. The theoretical base of industrial psychiatry is traced here, and examined within a framework of systems analysis, the input being identified in terms of human and social factors. Internal processes of organisation and management produce conditions of practice which determine the health status of the workplace; some statutory protection is necessary to safeguard mental health in industry.
