Abstract

The main aim of the workshop was to examine the rise in the number of young people claiming disability benefits. In many EU Member States, there is increasing policy concern about the growing numbers of young people who are entering long-term disability schemes. It appears that the nature of the illnesses which qualify people for these benefits is changing, with evidence of growing numbers of people categorised as disabled due to mental health problems.
