Mental health is a subject that is getting a lot of attention right now.
The COVID pandemic has resulted in a lot of media attention about wellbeing and the effects of poor mental health. But we have known this for a long time, not just because of COVID.
One in six employees will experience depression, anxiety or stress at work. Last year, there were over 600,000 recorded cases of work-related stress and 54% of days lost due to illness are because of stress-related problems.
Over 6,000 cases of suicide occur each year in the UK.
Mental health illness is the second largest burden on the health service, the NHS spends £105 billion each year on mental health treatments.
The list of statistics goes on and on. But behind these figures are real people. Each one of those numbers equates to a person who is suffering from anxiety, stress or unable to do their job properly.
Companies, large and small, have a role to play. There is a legal requirement in the UK for employers to ‘take reasonable care’ of their employees and this includes both physical and mental health.
