MANAGING MENTAL HEALTH
IN THE WORKPLACE
1 in 5 ADULTS will experience a diagnosable mental illness in any given year, however more than half of those individuals will go untreated.
Employees who are treated for mental health issues report improved levels of work efficacy and satisfaction. Another result is lower total medical costs, increased productivity, lower absenteeism and decreased disability costs. The bottom line: investing in a MENTALLY HEALTHY WORKFORCE IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS.
Leaders need to understand the challenges and barriers facing those with mental health needs. Once it is recognized treating employees’ mental health needs is equal to treating their physical health needs the framework has been set for a cultural shift.
