Organizations have an enormous influence on their employee’s mental health in the workplace. When leadership talks openly about mental health, their own included, it not only breaks down stigmas but encourages employees to speak up about their own mental health. Organizations can build a culture of mental wellness where getting mental health help is a sign of strength and is as routine as getting medical care for any other health condition. When employees are treated for mental health conditions, 80% reported improved work satisfaction and functioning. The financial and human cost for organizations that don’t make mental health a priority is substantial. Mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression cost the world’s economy $1 trillion each year in lost productivity, absenteeism, and difficulty completing tasks. The bottom line: a mentally healthy workforce is a wise investment for organizations and their employees.
