Mental health in the workplace affects us all, whether we are employers or employees. When mental health issues are not addressed and treated appropriately, there can be considerable personal and financial costs to both individuals and organizations. Fortunately, with prevention, early treatment and support , many of these costs can be significantly reduced or eliminated entirely. Forward thinking organizations have already begun to focus on what they can do to support the mental health of their employees. Given predictions that depression will be the second leading cause of disability by 2020, we can expect mental health in the workplace to be a key management issue for many years to come.
