Depression in the Workplace
Why focus on depression at work?

Depression is a common mental health problem that impacts the health and wellbeing of individuals worldwide, regardless of age, gender or background. Over recent years, there has been increased awareness of the connection between depression and the workplace. Depression in the workplace is associated with an enormous degree of disability and significant emotional and financial cost to both employees and employers.

There is a two-way connection:

  1. Stress and conflict in the workplace can contribute to depression.
  2. Depression can make it difficult for an individual to perform their job, affecting concentration, decision-making, and interactions with others.

Helping employees deal with depression (or preventing it in the first place) will help both employees and employers: everybody wins. This book has been designed to help with effective management of low mood, with the aim of preventing mild or moderate depression from becoming more severe.
