According to research published by Mind, around a third of adults and young people said their mental health has got much worse since March 2020, and 1 in 5 adults did not seek support during the pandemic because they didn’t think their problem was serious enough. Mental health and stress related conditions are now the most common reported causes of sickness absence from work in the Northern Ireland, with mental health sickness absence costing employers an estimated £3.4 billion per annum.
