According to the CDC, emotional health issues in the workforce are more common than most employers realize. And most don’t offer an emotional health program to help employees.
- In a given year, 9.5% of the adult population will suffer from a depressive illness
- In a 3-month period, patients with depression miss an average of 4.8 workdays and suffer 11.5 days of reduced productivity
- Depression is estimated to cause 200 million lost workdays each year at a cost to employers of $17 to $44 billion
Unfortunately, 2 out of 3 people struggling with an emotional health condition do not receive adequate treatment. But the good news is that treatment works – data shows that up to 80% of people with an emotional health condition improve if properly diagnosed and treated.
That’s why we’re so excited to offer behavioral and mental health programs that help employees feel happier and healthier.
It’s an important element of our workforce health and wellness program.
