The research – conducted by Cascade HR – polled 540 UK participants across a range of occupations and demographics, in readiness for Mental Health Awareness Week (14-18 May).
20% of respondents claimed they had been off work due to stress, but a staggering 67% said they had felt stressed at work – for a period of one week or more – during the past 12 months.

The 100th anniversary of women achieving the vote is marked in 2018 and next year it will also be the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919, which paved the way for women to become lawyers.
