Understanding Mental Health at Work
The World Health Organization reports that there has been a 13% rise in mental health conditions and substance use disorders in the last decade. These mental health issues come at a serious cost. The WHO also estimates that depression and anxiety cost the global economy an estimated $1 trillion (USD) each year. A 2021 study by Mind Share Partners found that 75% of full-time US workers experienced at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the past year—up from 59% in 2019. This is not just a problem for lower-level employees. In 2019, mental health symptoms were equally prevalent across all seniority levels, and in 2021, executives and C-Level respondents were more likely to report at least one mental health symptom. The data is clear, there is a need for a greater understanding of mental health at work.
