Nearly 45% of people have considered leaving their job due to mental health issues*.
Almost 25% of people feel their workplace is contributing negatively to their mental well-being*.
That’s a lot of unhappy people!
Did you know that alongside musculoskeletal (MSK) problems, stress and depression are the leading causes of time away from work?
Here’s another interesting fact. A large UK firm who recently instigated a policy of training staff in dealing with mental health issues found that they had a 42% reduction in mental health related absence issues. Perhaps more surprisingly, they also had a 48% decrease in MSK related absence issues.
That’s a lot of money saved, and a lot of employees feeling physically and emotionally much better.
Just as our physical health is inexorably linked with our mental health, so our working life is linked with our personal life. Depression, anxiety, lack of confidence and phobias, such as a fear of public speaking, can all negatively affect our work.
Equally, stresses and frustrations at work can have detrimental effects on our emotional and mental well-being, making depression and anxiety worse and affecting our relationships with family and friends.
