A new Mori study carried out upon the request of the European Depression Association (EDA) highlighted that one in ten workers have been unable to come to work due to the condition.
The survey involved employees from Britain, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Turkey, Spain and France being studied, with those from the former three countries most likely to take time off work due to depression.
However, the study did go on to reveal that the amount of support being offered to people with depression has improved.
In fact, 20 per cent of the 7,000 workers questioned stated that they had received a diagnosis for the condition, with this rate being largest in the UK.
Dr Vincenzo Costigliola, president of the EDA, is hopeful that more will be done in the future though. He noted: "We ask policymakers to consider the impact of depression on the workforce and charge them with addressing depression and workers and workplace safety."
