Course Content

The charts above from the HSE statistics for 2016/17 show some of the impact of stress, depression and anxiety in workplaces. Nearly two thirds of people have experienced a mental health problem. If someone has a mental illness, like anxiety or depression for example, for over 12 months and they can show that it’s causing them substantial disadvantages at work, it can be classed as a disability. This means the employee is protected by the Equality Act
