With recent research showing mental illness now accounts for nearly half of all ill health suffered by people under 65, a group of experts discuss the steps employers can take to tackle work-related stress.
A report published in June by the London School of Economics explains how mental illness now accounts for nearly half of all ill health suffered by people under 65 – and it is more disabling than most chronic physical disease. Yet only a quarter of those involved are in any form of treatment.
Here, Jonathan Houdmont, lecturer in occupational health psychology, University of Nottingham; Lisa Fowlie, health and safety adviser, Bangor University; Emma Donaldson-Feilder, chartered occupational psychologist, Affinity Health at Work; Robert Baughan, national officer for health & safety, UNISON; and Poppy Jaman, CEO, MHFA England, discuss the best approaches to tackling work-related stress and supporting employees suffering from mental health issues.
