Cost of Mental Illness

A recent study of 30,000 workers showed that individuals suffering from depression took an average of 30 days off work while stress-sufferers were away for 21 days.

This research shows just how important it is for managers and HR professionals to take early action to support individuals before their condition deteriorates into a long-term sick leave problem.

    I feel that negativity in the workplace is depressive in itself! Organizations who take time and energy to create positive working environments will see happier individuals which will in turn create higher productivity and business results.
