Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. In fact, work related stress accounted for 45% of all working days lost to ill health in the UK in 2015/16.

Mental health related absences cost UK employers an estimated £26 billion per year – over £1,000 per employee – on top of the value of lost productivity. It is estimated that by taking a few simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace, UK employers could save 30% or more of these losses – at least £8 billion a year.
