The HSE calculated that stress, anxiety and depression led to the following results in 2019:

  • 6 million workers suffering from work-related stress anxiety and depression (new and long-standing cases) in 2018/2019
  • 21 working days lost per case on average
  • 8 million working days lost
  • 54% of all working days lost due to ill health
  • 44% of all work-related ill health cases
  • £5.2B annual cost of work-related stress, anxiety, and depression in Great Britain

Due to the impact of Covid-19, it’s safe to say these numbers are set to increase.
