In the UK stress accounts for 45% of lost working days in an average working year, and £105 billion to the economy. Mental health disorders are on the rise globally and could cost the global economy up to £12.5 trillion between 2010 and 2030, yet no national or international standards exist for mental health. Having a standardised way of deploying services would save trillions of pounds.
