Research output: Other contribution

While employment has an overall protective effect against mental ill health, evidence
suggests variation in mental health with respect to occupation types. Individuals who manage multiple roles in relation to childcare and family caregiving may be at increased risk of adverse mental health outcomes due to competing responsibilities
of family and work demands. This programme of work examines mental disorder across occupation types and the association of family demands.
