Get the Most out of Life
You are not alone, the latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) shows
The total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2015/16 was 488,000 cases, a prevalence rate of 1510 per 100,000 workers.
The number of new cases was 224,000, an incidence rate of 690 per 100,000 workers. The estimated number and rate have remained broadly flat for more than a decade.
The total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2015/16 was 11.7 million days. This equated to an average of 23.9 days lost per case. Working days lost per worker showed a generally downward trend up to around 2009/10; since then the rate has been broadly flat.
In 2015/16 stress accounted for 37% of all work related ill health cases and 45% of all working days lost due to ill health.
Stress is more prevalent in public service industries, such as education; health and social care; and public administration and defence.

It can be hard to stop when you are feeling overwhelmed with stress but taking time to pause is really important in avoiding burnout when stress is the on the rise. Lorraine and Claudia provide a space to stop and take stock of where you are in the scale of stress indicators, remind yourself of what life looked like in the green healthy zone and help you to create a personal action plan to reduce stress and enjoy life again, both in and out of workplace.
Shifting stress can take time, so as well as an initial personal stress and resilience consultation, we offer follow up appointments to support you as you get back on track and feeling better.
