A CHARITY has launched a two-year long pilot project to help people stay in work if they suffer from depression.

Bromley Mind last week launched the job retention service to coincide with national Mindweek, which took place between May 17 until 21.

People who are suffering from depression and stress will be given mentoring to help develop an action plan and strategies to cope with their illness while carrying on at work.

According to the charity early recognition of the signs of anxiety and stress are vital in dealing with the condition effectively.

Each year, one in every six workers experience depression, anxiety and stress as a direct result of problems at work, and mental ill health costs employers £26 billion per year due to loss of productivity and sick days taken. Contact the job retention worker Lindsay Barlow on 01689 811 222.
