Did you know that depression is a “top driver of health care costs to employers”? Or that 1 in 5 employees suffers from some sort of mental health condition?
No? I didn’t either.
Every now and then I find a great article that I have to pass along. “Five Things Employers Need to Know About Mental Health” is such an article. Published online at http://www.insurancethoughtleadership.com, it outlines what every employer needs to know about mental health (hence the title 🙂 and goes on to give 6 steps in helping to provide a solution in the workplace.
It also provides a link to www.workingminds.com, a website whose goal suicide prevention in the workplace.
Check out both sites and start thinking about the problem before it becomes a crisis in your workplace.
