Report reveals 300,000 people lose jobs over mental health each year

From the ITV News website: https://www.itv.com/news/2017-10-26/report-reveals-300-000-people-lose-jobs-over-mental-health-each-year/

Around 300,000 people with a long-term mental health condition lose their jobs each year, a report has revealed.

The Thriving at Work report commissioned by Theresa May, found that the annual cost to the UK economy has been estimated as up to £99 billion.

The independent review - conducted by Paul Farmer, the chief executive of the mental health charity Mind, and Lord Stevenson, the former chairman of HBOS - also found that people with mental health problems are losing their jobs at double the rate of people without such conditions.

Mr Farmer said they found that in many workplaces mental health is still "a taboo subject" and that opportunities to prevent poor mental health are being missed.

He said: "In many instances employers simply don't understand the crucial role they can play, or know where to go for advice and support.

"The human cost of failing to address mental health in the workplace is clear.

"Every employer in the UK has a responsibility to support employees with mental health problems and promote the mental wellbeing of their entire workforce."

Analysis by Deloitte for the review suggests that mental ill health costs employers up to £42 billion every year.
