The amount of claims for mental health treatment through work has increased by 53% over the course of a decade, according to research from Bupa.

In 2016, 19,715 Bupa members were treated for mental health disorders in comparison with 12,913 Bupa members who were treated in 2007. This is an increase of 53%, with stress and anxiety cited as the key drivers.

The research coincides with the launch of the Bupa Wellbeing Edit - a report which explores key themes in workplace wellbeing.
