How To Create A Workplace That Supports Mental Health

Mental illness and substance abuse costs employers an estimated $225.8 billion each year, according to a recent study, that featured a random sample of over 28,000 workers in the US. The largest indirect cost of mental illness comes in the form of decreased performance due to absenteeism, or regularly missing work, and presenteeism, or working while sick.

While most employers notice absenteeism, they often overlook presenteeism. A study measuring health-related productivity estimated that individuals working with untreated illnesses cost employers $1,601 per person each year. CEOs underestimate the hidden costs of employee wellbeing.

In this thought provoking presentation, DeAnn encourages employers to effectively assess and address the most pertinent psychosocial factors known to have a powerful impact on organizational health, the health of individual employees, and the financial bottom line.

Suicide Prevention in the Workplace. Suicide is a topic that must be brought out of the darkness in order to save lives. There are many organizations working to dispel myths and bring hope and light to the subject so that those in crisis feel comfortable seeking help to recover and reengage fully in life. While the burden of suicide is carried by the working-age population, age 24-64, most workplaces are relatively unprepared to help employees who are struggling with suicidal thoughts or to assist colleagues following the death of a co-worker by suicide (CDC, 2010). Thankfully, employers can play a powerful role in preventing suicide and responding appropriately when tragedies occur.
