Men ‘more likely to suffer work-related mental health problems’

Macho culture is partly to blame, says charity

Men are twice as likely to have mental health problems due to their job as they are to suffer problems outside of work, research suggests. The survey from mental health charity Mind found one in three men (32%) attributed poor mental health to their job, compared to one in seven (14%) who cited problems outside of work. Job and problems outside of work were equal contributing factors among women, with each cited by one in five female respondents. The survey of 15,000 employees across 30 organisations suggests men are less prepared to seek help and take time off than women. While two in five women (38%) said they feel the culture in their organisation makes it possible to speak openly about their mental health problems, only one in three men (31%) said the same.   Excerpt from Health Insurance Daily, read the full article here.
