MINGOTE ADAN, José Carlos  y  NUNEZ LOPEZ, Concepción. Importance of mental health in labour health management: a shared liability. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2011, vol.57, suppl.1, pp.239-262. ISSN 1989-7790.

The article focuses on the description of interventions that can be made from the Labor Risk Prevention Services and Mental Health towards mental health disorders and substance abuse in workers. Integrated care is required including prevention, promotion and employee assistance with these disorders, as well of those derived from psychosocial factors in the workplace. Currently there is widespread agreement among professionals and managers about the fact that attention on Mental Health Services should give priority to people with severe mental disorder, as they tend to have greater disability resulting from these disorders. For this project it necessary to have tools to improve the early diagnosis of such cases as well as the resources needed to conduct effective treatment. Spain is among the group of countries with high alcohol consumption. Among the disorders associated with substances, abuse and alcohol dependence are the most common disorders, therefore it is necessary to develop programs to prevent these disorders with detection of substances in the workplace and employee assistance programs which have already proved effectiveness.
