No Boris, Working Harder Won’t “Cure” Mental Illness.

In a recent column in the Telegraph, Boris Johnson—our new prime minister— suggested how “we can improve mental health, save money and boost the economy all in one go.” ... Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying your job, and I am glad that the people in power are now considering mental health as part of their policy making; however, to position work as a “therapy” or even a “cure” is not only ignorant, but dangerous.
