Clinicians are growing more aware of the extent of mental health concerns in today's workforce. Organizations now need to contend with issues related to disruptive psychopathological behaviour. The Handbook of Mental Health in the Workplace is a timely reference tool to assist researchers and academics in the fields of occupational psychology and human resource management. It includes papers from expert contributors that provide the latest research and up-to-date developments in this area. This Handbook stimulates new perspectives on established theories and generates practical, yet rigorous, solutions to new problems.
