Suffering in silence: The truth about mental health in the workplace

The new survey shows that huge numbers of employees in the UK are still hiding mental health conditions from their employers for fear of it affecting their job.

4 in 10 employed people in the UK say they have experienced a common mental health problem like stress, anxiety or depression in the last year and not told their employer. Perhaps even more worryingly, the survey found that more than a quarter of employees have taken a sick day claiming it was for a physical problem when it was in fact for a mental health issue.
