According to the latest report, 66.6 percent of adult Poles currently experience at least one of the syndromes most commonly associated with depression. Since the beginning of last year, there has been a decrease of 6.2 percentage points. Among the most widely indicated symptoms are fatigue and lack of energy – 34.3 percent, low mood – 32.3 percent, and sleep disturbances – 27.6 percent. Suicidal thoughts and actions, on the other hand, are the least frequently mentioned – 4.4 percent.

The study authors attribute the overall improvement in results to the decline in inflation. Nevertheless, they cautiously estimate that the economy is losing at least close to PLN 3 billion annually on this. This calculation only assumes the absence from work of people experiencing depressive episodes and recurrent depressive disorders.
