UK Research by charity Mind has found that work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives. With the deepening economic crisis, mental health issues linked to work are on the rise.
One in six people of working age in the UK are considered to have mental health conditions, ranging from stress and anxiety and those with depression, which is relatively common, to those with rarer disorders such as schizophrenia.
It would make good economic sense for businesses to become proactive and hire health care providers that specialize in relieving stress. This move could easily provide a cost effective to lower stress.
