The cost of poor mental health

The cost of poor mental health

They found that about 15% of people at work have symptoms of an existing mental health condition, which the authors said illustrates the fact that given the right support they can thrive in employment.

The review quantifies how investing in supporting mental health at work is good for business and productivity. It includes research by audit firm Deloitte on costs to employers and the state.

The NHS and the Civil Service, two of the country's largest employers, have already announced that they will abide by the recommendations that apply to them - meaning that more than two million public sector workers will receive tailored in-house mental health support.

The exercise involved screenings, blood pressure test, mental health assessment surrounding anxiety, depression, alcoholism and a mental health talk. The most important recommendation is that all employers, regardless of size or industry, should adopt 6 "mental health core standards" that lay basic foundations for an approach to workplace mental health.

PM Theresa May, who commissioned the report at the start of the year, said she has "made it a priority of this government to tackle the injustice of mental illness".

"There we can work to improve the resilience and psychological wellbeing of children and young people to prevent the development of difficulties, as well as intervene early when difficulties do arise".

Gianluigi Buffon wins Federation Internationale de Football Association best goalkeeper of the year award
If he does win the competition then he may continue as a back-up to former Arsenal man Wojciech Szczesny . It's been 11 years since Buffon became world champion, but he lost 3 Champions League finals he played.

Around 6% of people with a long-term mental health condition lose their job each quarter - amounting to 300,000 people each year - compared with 4% of those with a physical health condition.

These recommendations are based on best practice or evidence, and the authors state there is a "pressing need" for more robust evidence about what works to support improved mental health at work.

"There are many people out there working to make sure that children and young people who experience mental health issues are offered caring support. The mental health awareness is The Retreat contribution to a national discourse on mental health issues in Nigeria".

Produce, implement and communicate a "mental health at work" plan.

Half of this is accounted for by "presenteeism" - where people come to work, but are less productive due to poor mental health - with additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover.

Encourage open conversations about mental health and the support available when employees are struggling.
