An estimated 50% of all Americans is diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime1. Employers recognize that untreated mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety, lead to costly challenges such as absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased health care and disability costs. Workplace health promotion programs play a key role in helping employers identify and prevent mental illness and improve employees’ quality of life.
Ewuria Darley from the American Psychiatric Association Foundation’s Center for Workplace Mental Health, will discuss mental health practices in the workplace, current trends, employer roles, strategies for addressing employees’ mental health, and key resources for employers.
