Research reveals that workers are suffering from mental illness in silence because of fears about damage to job prospects and lack of understanding from others.

The majority of workers have a fear of speaking up about their mental health issues.

As many as one in five workers experience mental health problems, but due to fears about damage to job prospects, not getting support and lack of understanding from managers most workers are afraid to tell anyone.

Although the research was based on a UK study, Australian campaigners say the research reflects similar challenges here.
