Staff 'mental illness' on rise

4th June 2007

A new report has suggested that mental illness is now the second largest reason for people in the UK taking time off work.

Stress and depression were identified as reasons behind an increasing amount of sick leave being taken, according to the study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. Only muscle-related problems such as bad backs were a greater reason for people being absent from the workplace. But staff with depression were found to be taking on average 30 days off a year.
