Workplace stress, anxiety and depression: How you can help your team

Your team are your greatest business asset. It’s natural that you want to ensure their working environment is as stress-free as possible, and help combat feelings of stress in the workplace when they occur.

The Centre for Mental Health found that Mental health problems at work cost the UK economy £34.9bn last year, with a reduction in productivity of £1,300 for every employed worker in the UK.

With one in five working people having mental health difficulties, at any one time, it’s no secret that the workplace can be a source of anxiety. Whether you’re in senior management or have just started your first job - stress can affect anyone, at any level of an organisation.

Often people will continue working until they find that they are unable to function, and even routine decisions become a challenge. It is often at this stage when productivity is compromised and when the situation comes to the attention of your organisation.
