According to data published today (February 13th), the number of NHS staff members taking time off from their jobs due to this mental health issue has gone up in recent times across four of the country's health boards.
For instance, the Cardiff and Vale University health board reported a hike of 24 per cent in such instances over the last two years, while the Hywel Dda experienced a rise of 40 per cent over the same period.
Meanwhile, Betsi Cadwaladr saw stress levels go up by 34 per cent and the Aneurin Bevan body endured an increase of 14 per cent.
Darren Millar, shadow health minister and assembly member for Clwyd West, commented: "The NHS in Wales is currently under considerable pressure and these figures could be viewed as a worrying reflection of the many burdens placed on health board staff."
