According to a study conducted by experts at the University of Nottingham and the University of Ulster, around 25 per cent of all professionals will suffer with mental anxiety during a time of recession.
And the investigation - which was published today (February 22nd) in the journal Occupational Medicine - found that stress related to jobs becomes around 40 per cent more common at such periods.
Recently, Neil Shah, director of the Stress Management Society, stated that this problem has a "physical, mental and emotional impact" on people and the study also revealed that absences from work due to stress climb by 25 per cent during a financial slump.
Jonathan Houdmont, lead author of the research, commented that business that "seek to reduce work-related stress during austere economic times are likely to experience lower staff absence and greater productivity".
