Guide to Employee Mental Health
October 29, 2018
The CIPD’s 2016 Absence management survey found 41% of employers had seen an increase in reported mental health issues among their employees. And because many people don’t feel comfortable disclosing mental health issues to their employers, it is likely that the true number of people struggling with their mental health is actually far higher. According to the World Health Organisation, more than 300 million people of all ages suffer from depression – in fact, it’s now so prevalent it’s the number-one cause of disability worldwide.
