Are disability assessments associated with adverse trends in mental health? A longitudinal ecological study

This is the title of a study that was recently published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health (JECH) by Ben Barr and colleagues, which generated a considerable amount of press and political attention last week. Because I’m working with government at the moment I can’t really comment on the study right now, but rest assured I will in April when I’m back in my usual role again – and I have a loose agreement with the journal (JECH) to write a commentary on the piece too. In the meantime, the article itself is open access, and you can read it yourself here.
