This is a cross-sectoral study designed to assess the effort made by the authorities to ensure that citizens on sick leave and in psychiatric treatment, are offered a coherent plan for their return to work.
The report answers the following questions:
- Has the Ministry of Employment followed up on the effort of the job centres to en-sure that the citizens are offered statutory follow-up interviews and other services?
- Have the regions ensured, and the Ministry of Employment supported, that the re-gional mental health services and the job centres coordinate their efforts to ensure that the citizens can return to the labour market as quickly as possible?
It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the authorities’ effort to ensure that citizens on sick leave and in psychiatric treatment are offered a coherent plan for their return to work, has not been satisfactory. As a consequence, vulnerable citizens in psychiatric treatment risk losing their attachment to the labour market.
