The Global Burden of Disease study identified mild depression as a significant burden of ill health. Additionally, this falls primarily on working age adults and is therefore potentially an important indicator of workforce health. Mental health problems tend to be concentrated in those without sufficient social or financial resources to take control over their own lives.
Mental health prevalence and outcome indicators are drawn from the Quality and Outcomes Framework and Public Health Outcomes Framework * indicates a statistically significant difference from the respective English Average.
