Symptoms of mental ill-health first appear between the ages of 15 to 25 years; Up to 75% of mental health problems will emerge before the age of 25, most likely during adolescence and early adulthood, the same time when young people are typically completing their schooling or entering the workforce. Because of this, young people with mental ill-health may experience disruptions to their education, career planning or find it difficult to find and maintain employment. This is where vocational recovery comes in. Vocational recovery can provide young people with the support they need to help minimise the effects of these disruptions. This can include things like help defining career goals, finding flexible work and study options, searching or applying for jobs, career counselling and continued support whilst studying or working.
