2 Useful Webinars For Implementation Of A Successful Workplace Environment
Mental Illness Awareness Skills for Your Workplace
Presented by Jim Zalud
1,000,000 people in the U.S. miss work each day, due to stress. That converts to over 300 Million lost workdays per year. Can your company afford to be part of this equation? I don’t think so. Depression alone results in more days of disability than heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. The cost alone to treat mood disorders is around $50 BILLION. Depression that is untreated, undiagnosed, or ineffectively treated, is the number 1 cause of suicide. Do you, your executives, and fellow employees, know how to identify and deal with someone who may be suicidal?
Mentally healthy workplaces are positive and productive and get the best out of their people. Businesses that actively promote good mental health attract and retain top talent because they’re great places to work. By supporting people with mental health conditions and encouraging openness, they create workplace cultures that are diverse and inclusive. Untreated mental health conditions cost American employers billions every year through absenteeism, reduced productivity and compensation claims. Other effects of a mentally unhealthy workplace include poor morale and staff engagement, high staff turnover and potential penalties for breaches of work health and safety legislation. The business’s reputation is also at risk among potential clients, customers and employees.
