The cost of poor mental health

The reviewers are calling on all employers, regardless of size or industry, to adopt six "mental health core standards" that lay the basic foundations for an approach to workplace mental health. This may involve considering a return-to-work plan suggested by occupational health.

It was written by Lord Dennis Stevenson (mental health campaigner and former HBOS chief) and Paul Farmer (chief executive of the mental health charity Mind), and was jointly published by the Department of Health and the Department for Work and Pensions.

The administrative costs that might be incurred by keeping the employee on the books.

The findings in CQC's phase one report will inform the Government's Green Paper on children and young people's mental health, expected before the end of the calendar year. However, the report stresses that people with mental health conditions can still thrive at work if given the right support.

"The Retreat is Nigeria's first objective built mental hospital in Nigeria and by deploying high level mental health professionals we intend to give back to the society", he added.


Provide employees with good working conditions.

Theresa May, who commissioned the report said that it showed 'we need to take action.' She went on to say: "It is only by making this an everyday concern for everyone that we change the way we see mental illness so that striving to improve your mental health - whether at work or at home - is seen as just as positive as improving our physical wellbeing". "Every employer in the United Kingdom has a responsibility to support employees with mental health problems and promote the mental wellbeing of their entire workforce".

The authors conclude: "At a time when there is a national focus on productivity, the inescapable conclusion is that it is massively in the interest of both employers and Government to prioritise and invest far more in improving mental health".

It also found that people with long term mental health problems were leaving their jobs double the rate of their colleagues.

Half of this is accounted for by "presenteeism" - where people come to work, but are less productive due to poor mental health - with additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover. "It should spur employers into recognising that championing mental health and supporting employees makes good business sense and that inaction comes at a demonstrable cost".
