British workers 'most depressed in Europe'

[url=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9577235/British-workers-most-depressed-in-Europe.html]British workers are the most depressed in Europe, according to a report that claims a quarter of employees here have been diagnosed with the affliction.[/url] [quote]While 26 per cent of British workers have received a diagnosis, only 12 per cent of their Italian colleagues have, found the Impact of Depression in the Workplace in Europe Audit. We are also among the most likely to take time off work due to depression, and spender longer than average on sick leave - 41 days compared to the European mean of 36. Across Europe, one in 10 workers has taken time off for depression, found the survey. Dr Vincenzo Costigliola, president of the European Depression Association said "The results of the IDEA survey show that much needs to be done in raising awareness and supporting employees and employers in recognising and managing depression in the workplace." Britain's position at the top of league of worker depression may be due in part to awareness and diagnosis being better here than in other countries.[/quote] Pretty bad. I had no idea depression in the work place was so widespread. In fact this is the first time I have ever seen an article about this. What do you make of it Flood?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Garland People get time off work for being depressed? LOL, what a joke.[/quote] I guess it could be easy to fake, but if people are having really self hating depression, they probably wouldn't be able to do their job well.

LOL, what a joke.[/quote] This just made me realise, depression might be the easiest disorder to fake, as long you know enough about it clinically.

  • Britain is lazy. If someone can get out of work by faking an illness, they will. *Is british* - has depression. [Edited on 10.01.2012 3:53 AM PDT]
