6.5 billion CHF
Stress effects in Switzerland
Consequences of stress
1 out of 5 people suffers from depression. The estimated cost is 10 billion CHF per year, however this number may be understimated, since many cases are not reported (Tomonaga et al. 2013, University of Zurich)
There are still few studies but SECO estimates the burnout and its consequences cost 4.2 billion CHF per year. A large part of the costs are due to absenteeism and reduced productivity.
