Mental health patients will be helped back in to work with an extra £12 million funding from the Government.

New approaches will be tested in four pilot areas across the country to help those with mental health conditions find and stay in employment.

Employment advisers and GPs will receive training to identify mental health issues and recognise the role of work in improving mental health.

An effort will be made to offer "bespoke action plans" and get existing local support services better co-ordinated.

Nearly half (46%) of people claiming Employment and Support Allowance have mental health conditions.

Mental illness is estimated to cost taxpayers and businesses £105 billion a year in health and police services, welfare benefits and sickness absence.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: "It is shocking to think that mental health is now the leading cause of illness in the workplace.

"It's even more shocking that many of the people suffering are simply not getting the support they need.
