The number of working days lost due to the sickness absence reason of Mental Health issues between 2011-12 and 2016-17 in the Home Office is set out in the table enclosed.

In the Home Office we are committed to breaking down barriers and reducing stigma for those staff living with mental health conditions. We aim to equip managers to recognise and address stress in the workplace, and encourage employees to talk to their managers about mental health issues so that they can access help and support at the earliest stage.
