On World Mental Health Day (10 October 2016), research from Capita Employee Benefits reveals that almost half of UK workers (44%) know a colleague who has had to give up work because of stress, while more than a third of people (36%) say that colleagues have complained about feeling stressed to their employer, but received no support.

The story was featured in CIPD, Employee Benefits, Health Insurance Daily, HR Review,  PA Life  and Workplace Insight, as well as a number of regional publications including Metro Radio, Falkirk Herald and  Glasgow South and Eastwood Extra.
