According to Workplace Mental Health, 1 in 5 adults will experience a mental illness diagnosis in any given year. Of the 1 in 5 adults, more than half of those individuals will go untreated. Respecting and treating mental illness on par with other medical illnesses is the first step to improving employee quality of life—the foundation of an effective workplace.
The good news -- Treatment Works!
More than 80% of employees treated for mental illness report improved levels of work efficacy and satisfaction. And it’s cost-effective. When employees receive effective treatment for mental illnesses, the 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.
