Feel Happy At Work

 

 

15.2 million days of sickness absence across the UK in 2013 were caused by stress, anxiety and depression, according to latest figures.

 

For young people experiencing a mental health condition, gaining and staying in employment can be difficult.


Many report struggling to get past interview, while those who are successful worry about speaking openly about their illnesses in case managers and colleagues don’t understand.


As part of The Feel Happy Fix Live, 16 to 25-year-olds from across the UK are identifying the biggest issues to affect young people’s happiness at work, before proposing practical solutions to make change for the better.
