A new research report has been released by the Scottish Mental Health Partnership (SMHP) adding to an increasing body of evidence which shows that Employment Support Allowance (ESA) and the associated Work Capability Assessment (WCA) are not fit for purpose for people with lived experience of mental health problems.

The report outlines the findings and recommendations from an online survey, created by the SMHP, which asked people about their experiences of the WCA, ESA and associated employment support.
