Mental Health Conditions

Mental health conditions which include depression, anxiety and stress have become far too common in the workplace as 1 in 6 people experience a mental health problem in any given week, according to the NHS.

 

In fact, 55 per cent of organisations reported that in 2017 the number of employees with mental health conditions increased, according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

 

This is a jump from 41 per cent in 2016. Left unaddressed, mental health problems can reduce productivity and profitability costing your organisation an average of £1,035 for each employee according to the Centre for Mental Health.
