The UK is currently facing a mental health crisis, with around 1 in 5 adults in the UK experiencing some form of depression last year, which was more than double seen before the coronavirus pandemic.
According to research:
- 56% of employees had considered leaving their careers, with one in four citing mental health reasons
- 55% of employees say they would look for a new job if their mental wellbeing wasn’t being supported by their employer
- 57% of employees say that a supportive mental wellbeing policy would increase the likelihood of them joining a company.
