Cannon said: “Work-related stress or illness can happen to you, no matter what job you do.
“It doesn’t seem to discriminate, although of course it’s more prevalent in those jobs with high workloads, tight deadlines or toxic colleagues.
“Haven’t there always been tough deadlines, mammoth workloads and overtime – why has this epidemic of work-related illness arisen now?”
The event will also include a panel discussion on mental health in the workplace with Faye McGuinness, head of workplace wellbeing programmes at MIND, and James Ski, founder of Sales confidence, who will be talking about his own experience with Bipolar Disorder.
