Occupational therapy OT is a series of treatments designed to develop, recover, or maintain various necessary skills for individuals with physical, mental, or developmental difficulties. From these roots, occupational therapy has focused on the idea that occupation is essential to health and OT remains focused on helping individuals engage in their chosen occupations. In practice, occupational therapists take clients through the occupational therapy process, which also varies from client to client, but focuses on evaluation, intervention, and outcome. Occupational therapists work with individuals from childhood through adulthood. With children, especially for children with special needs such as Autism , OT can provide valuable skill development in such areas as handwriting, functional skills, coping skills and difficulty with sensory processing. One of the fastest growing areas of OT is helping individuals with mental illness.

The role of line managers in promoting positive mental health. Management Today and IOSH set out to examine the role line managers play in promoting positive mental health in the workplace. We conducted a survey of more than employees from a variety of businesses across the UK to get a clearer picture of what is being done in the workplace to support those with mental health problems. Our sample was split into two groups to enable us to evaluate the results from each group appropriately: one group comprised managers who have employees reporting directly to them, the other comprised managers without any direct reports. Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing provides practical advice and tools for managers to help create a healthy and productive place of work.
