Five of the 10 leading causes of disability worldwide are mental problems (major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, alcohol use and obsessive-compulsive disorders), according to World Health Organization studies. These disorders – together with anxiety, depression and stress – have a definitive impact on any working population. Mental health problems affect many employees — a fact that is usually overlooked because these disorders tend to be hidden at work. Researchers analyzing results from a nationally representative study of Americans ages 15 to 54, reported that 18% of those who were employed said they experienced symptoms of a mental health disorder in the previous month.
Join us as we learn how mental health impacts everyone — even those in the C-suite. We will have a candid conversation about employee mental health and productivity, and learn how to reduce stigma and increase access to care.
