Officer Stress (1112_15)

Request

I would like to know how many officers took sick leave for depression, anxiety, stress or post traumatic stress in the last financial year (ending April 2015)

 

By this I mean where any of the terms ‘depression’, ‘anxiety’ or ‘stress’ or ‘post traumatic stress’ appear in the description of the officer’s illness.

 

If possible, it would be useful for the information for each year to be broken down by rank, with a general description of the illness
