star this property answer text <p>Wellbeing indicators are used to inform DWP policy. For example, within the programme of work and health trials being delivered by the joint DWP/DHSC Work and Health Unit, ONS measures of wellbeing are being collected alongside health and employment outcomes to inform future policy development. Within the data pack that informed the 2016 Work, Health and Disability Green Paper, the relationship between employment status and wellbeing was considered.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, specific DWP initiatives are designed to help promote citizen wellbeing. For example, in 2019, the Department launched the `Mid-life MOTs’ online portal to encourage more active planning in the key areas of work, wellbeing and finances.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Work and Pensions recognise the impact unemployment can have on an individual’s mental health. An independent review* of the scientific evidence on the relationship between work and health, commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions, found strong evidence that unemployment is generally harmful to health and linked with poorer mental health, psychological distress, and psychiatric morbidity. Our jobcentre staff work in partnership with mental health providers and services to ensure individuals experiencing unemployment receive the necessary help they need to support them in their job search, work entry and job retention.</p><p>Notes: * Waddell G and Burton AK.
