BEIS Ministers and officials meet regularly with counterparts in DWP and DHSC to discuss issues around disability, work and health – including mental health – to pursue a joined up approach across Government. On 30 November 2017 the Government published ‘Improving Lives: The Future of Work, Health and Disability’, which set out the actions that we are taking across the three key settings: the welfare system, workplace and health services. This report also provided the Government response to “Thriving at work: The Stevenson / Farmer review of mental health and employers”.
