Employers Health joined forces in 2012 with the Partnership for Workplace Mental Health, a program of the American Psychiatric Foundation, to develop a first-of-its-kind educational initiative for the workplace to help decrease stigma associated with depression, which is a leading cause of lost productivity.
The initiative is designed to help motivate employees and their families to seek help when needed, and to provide employers with appropriate support tools and resources. Now, more than ever, it is important that employers take a step in the Right Direction, in order to support employees in an effort to better overall health and productivity. Information about depression in the workplace, and resources needed to combat this growing area of concern, can be found here.
Recently, a new national survey of U.S. workers, known as the The Impact of Depression at Work Audit (IDeA), revealed that two in five survey participants missed work due to depression. And more than half reported challenges related to thinking on the job, resulting in reduced productivity. Read the full press release announcing the survey results here...
