The Stakeholder's Response to Disability Management, Return to Work and Treatment highlights the key challenges for researchers from a business perspective: 1. The importance of mental health and disability as business issues. Given this, the research needs to consider the employee population, their challenges and needs. 2. Mental health disability is a multi-faceted concern that requires a research agenda that recognizes interconnections between symptom management, coping skills, individual decision making and opportunity. 3. The goal of disability management is to support ability and provide workers with the opportunity to function productively at work. A "rea-world" focus is essential for research and the resolution of systemic barriers. The challenge is to ensure that knowledge is applicable and considers the sources of motivation and "de-motivation" for both the employees and employers.
