The NDSU Extension Service recognizes the crucial need for mental and behavioral health awareness, education, and referrals. Although we do not employ mental health professionals, we provide educational resources on topics in mental and behavioral health and partner with existing groups and organizations to further training and support in this area. This site provides information on selected resources and programs to increase awareness and assist individuals in seeking out support for needs related to mental, emotional, and behavioral health.

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”.
