It has estimated that employees’ mental ill health now costs the UK economy between £42bn and £45bn a year, compared to £33bn to £42bn in 2017. The 16% rise is calculated from the mid-point between the two. Poor mental health among younger workers in particular was having an impact on employers’ costs. The report suggested organisations lost the equivalent of 8.3% of 18-to-29-year-olds’ salaries as a result of mental health-related productivity loss – the highest proportion of salary among any age group.
