Go to work to beat depression

Think your job is driving you crazy? Well, think again – the chances are it's actually keeping you sane.

Going to work has been shown to aid the recovery of people with depression. Returning to their job helped unhappy workers improve – provided bosses ­offered a caring and flexible approach.

Employers who kept in touch with ­depressed workers during sick leave also hastened their return, research shows. Depression is the most common reason for sick leave and a frequent motive for claiming long-term sickness benefit. It will affect 15 per cent of Britons at some point of their lives.
