Video from Tyneside MIND: mental health and the work capability assessment
Tyneside Mind has produced a new film about the Employment and Support Allowance Work Capability Assessment (WCA). In the film, actors depict the experiences of people who are supported by Tyneside Mind and have been through the WCA.
Many people find the process of going through the WCA difficult and distressing and this is reflected in the film.
Trigger warning: the film contains references to suicide which you may find triggering, please watch carefully.
Many people continue to find the WCA process stressful, insensitive, inaccurate and unfair. It needs to change.
