3 UK research into the impact of the recession on mental health found that as a direct result of recession: 1 in 10 had visited their GP for support Half said staff morale was low 28% were working longer hours A third said staff were having to compete against each other. (Mind Populus Study 2010) In Ireland 35% non-fatal injuries reported to the Health and Safety Authority in 2008/9 were listed as stress, depression or anxiety. (HSA, 2010).
