Recent research conducted by mental health charity Mind, found that work is the most stressful factor in peoples lives. Over the 2000 people surveyed, 34% reported that work was very or quite stressful more so than financial problems and debt (30%) or health (17%). With 19% of those surveyed taking days of sick due to workplace stress and 25% considering resigning, this study supports the consensus that attitudes towards mental health in workplaces need to be addressed.
