The government has a problem with the public actually using public services

The government announced the creation of the Joint Health and Work Unit and the Health and WorkService in 2015/16, both with a clear remit to cut benefits and “get people into work.” Given that mental health is a main cause for long-term sickness absence in the UK, a key aspect of this policy is to provide mental health services that get people back into work.

There has already been an attempt to provide mental health services for people who claim social security support, which includes a heavily resisted pilot to put therapists into job centresAnother heavily opposed government proposal was announced as part of the  health and work pilot programme to put job coaches in GP surgeries
The proposals have been widely held to be profoundly anti-therapeutic, potentially very damaging and professionally unethical.
