The workplace is one of the most important settings in which to promote health and well being. Over 70% of people in Wales are employed and research indicates that over a third of people identified their work as being the main cause of their feeling stressed.

It is important to recognise that the effects of work related emotional distress are not restricted to the workplace, they may affect the individual’s relationships with family and friends as well as impact on their leisure activities and other aspects of their life. However, employers need to recognise that work can have a negative as well as a positive impact on a person’s health and wellbeing.

If you are in work and are concerned about your levels of distress, talk to your manager or a close friend or your GP.
