Police Officer Sick Leave in 2016/17

Question

I would like to know how many officers took sick leave for depression, anxiety, stress or post traumatic stress between the financial year April 2016 to April 2017. 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. the financial year April 2016 to April 2017

1101
