Mental Health In the Workplace

“Globally, more than 300 million people suffer from depression, the leading cause of disability, with many of these people also suffering from symptoms of anxiety. A recent WHO-led study estimates that depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy US$ 1 trillion each year in lost productivity.”

This year’s theme of the World Health Organization is mental health in the workplace. Their website outlines key facts, an overview (excerpt above), risk factors, how to create a healthy workplace, supporting people with mental disorders at work, WHO response as well as helpful “related links”.
