Great, timely and important piece. A quote:

The fact that we only talk about workplace stress when there is a high-profile case of mental ill-health is a problem.

And another:

… mental illness is an illness, just like hypertension. That may sound semantic but it is important. It helps sufferers counter the (understandable) impulse to think: “I must snap out of it.” That will not lead them to good health, any more than it would for blood pressure. Recognising these illnesses as illnesses will help sufferers and those around them take them seriously.
