Depression & anxiety in the workplace: The costs and outcomes of working while ill

Depressive and anxiety disorders are common in the working population and costly. Individuals can continue working while ill or take an absence from work. This study is evaluating the economic cost and health outcomes of these two scenarios, using existing and published data to develop descriptive models. We consider "who pays" and "who benefits" from the perspective of the individual, their employer and society, to inform policy making, management practices and clinical care.

This project is a participant based study
