ABSTRACT
The article discusses the comparative study wherein guideline-based care supplied by the occupational therapist turned out to be more cost-effective in treating common mental health problems among the workers than the standard care done by the psychologists as tested among 240 Dutch police officers who are in sick leave due to mental health problems. According to the study, the guideline-based approach stresses a gradual return to work and helps employees in dealing with stress at work as well as improved their problem solving skills.
