Country of origin: UK
Click for Full Details: www.mind.org.ukThe Government has reaffirmed its commitment to promoting better mental health in the workplace to combat the growing problem of stress.
A report by mental health charity Mind says excessive stress and anxiety is causing an epidemic of depression and anxiety, costing the economy about £100 billion a year in lost output.
Around 45 million working days are lost each year, also contributing to underperformance among those who do not take sick leave and struggle to stay on the workplace treadmill.
The report distinguished between positive pressure at work, which can be a valuable motivational spur, and stress, which can lead to a downward spiral of physical and mental ill health.
Promoting mental health and well-being is one of the key goals of Choosing Health, the Government?s high profile public health strategy. It includes a healthy workplace programme, encouraging employers to adopt policies and guidelines to promote better mental health at work, tackle stress and support staff experiencing distress.
