MENTAL HEALTH LITERACY IN YOUR WORKPLACE 

Free resources and training on the early identification and remediation of mental health issues in the workplace for Employers, Management Staff, HR Professionals and Employees

Some alarming facts supporting why these resources and training programs are so urgently needed.....

One in five people (20% of an employer's workforce) will suffer from mental illness this year.

Mental health conditions are the leading cause of lost workdays and productivity among workers between the ages of 18 and 44. 

> Under new ADA regulations employers are at significantly greater risk of being charged by the EEOC for "Mental Impairment Discrimination" due to the expanded definition of "Major Life Activities".

> Mental Health accounts for 47% of a company`s health and lost productivity costs (physical illnesses account for only 25% of costs).

The cost to an employer of an untreated employee with a mental health condition is twice that of an employee who has received treatment.

There is an 80% treatment success rate yet less than 30% of those with a mental health condition will actually seek treatment due to the stigma of mental illness. 


> Many of the costs, legal liabilities and tragic consequences of mental illness can be avoided by implementing simple, inexpensive mental health strategies in YOUR workplace!
