The CMHA states that the cost of Mental Health accommodation in the workplace is less than $500 per claim. If employees receive access to treatment early, employers can save more than $500 per employee, per year in medication costs, sick leave and average wage replacement.
At some point in their lives, most people will be faced with an issue that requires professional help. A study conducted by Harvard University concluded that over the next 20 years, depression will affect more working people around the world than AIDS, Cancer and Heart Disease combined.
Workplace Managers, supervisors and Human Resource teams often don’t know how to properly manage Mental Health issues and have a tendency to ignore the situation until the employee either loses their job, or goes off on disability. Why? Because Mental Health issues are not often understood and carry a negative stigma. At times, employees may not even be aware of why they are feeling or reacting in a certain way and, in turn, ignore their symptoms rather than seeking medical attention.
