    Abstract

    There is now a strong evidence base for the benefits of employment for people with both physical and mental health conditions and for disabled people [ 1]. Indeed, employment is recognized as having a central role in our society and in the lives of most people. For disabled people, employment also has a role in changing the way they are viewed in our society. This is especially true for those who have mental health conditions and hidden impairments meaning conditions identified by experts but which are not always visible to the public and which may not attract a diagnosis but which contribute to social difficulties.
