The individual cost of workplace stress can be catastrophic.
I'm talking - developing severe and horrific physical and mental health complications which may leave the individual out of action for weeks, months and even years.
Most people are aware of the mental health costs (and if you're not it's usually depression & anxiety, although it has been linked to things like bipolar disorder, schizophrenia...).
But, more recently research into physical illnesses has shown clear causal links between stress and things like cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
More often than not, because our brains and bodies are linked you'll usually have a combination of both - sorry!
That's a phenomenal amount of money.
Imagine what we could do with that money.
The NHS 'black hole' is only 22 billion.
We'd be able to pay for that with loads to invest in infrastructure, education, social services, the police force...
Reducing workplace stress is by far the quickest and easiest way to get the country back on track.
