According to a survey of over 2,000 people by Mind, one in three (34%) people said their work life is the most stressful factor in their lives - more so than debt or financial problems (30%) or health issues (17%).
The key findings of the survey by Mind included:
Over half of managers (56%) said they would like to do more to improve mental wellbeing, but they needed more training and/or guidance
One in six workers is experiencing depression, stress or anxiety.
Three in five people said that if their employer took action to support the mental wellbeing of all staff, they would feel more loyal, motivated, committed and be more likely to recommend their workplace as a good place to work.
