Mental Health conditions are common. Did you know it has been reported that 84% of employees have experienced poor mental health at work? Yet almost 70% hid their mental health condition from coworkers and leadership. Why is that? In a word, Stigma. Many employees worry their coworkers will see them as weak, or the organization will question their capability. When organizations focus on mental health in the workplace they send a powerful message to employees that it’s not only okay to get help but that the company values and cares about them. When employees seek treatment for their mental health, 80% reported improved work satisfaction and functioning. When employees take care of their mental health, it leads to better performance, engagement, satisfaction, and overall wellbeing.
