By the Numbers – Mental health and the workplace

Toronto – October 9, 2018 – In Canadian workplaces, about a third of short-term and long-term disability claims are attributed to mental health problems and illnesses. But the prevalence of workplace mental health issues is likely higher, for many workers report they are hesitant to tell their manager they are suffering from depression, anxiety, or other psychological challenges. They are more likely to report to their own family doctor, with depression alone now equal to high blood pressure in terms of the top issue that physicians see in their practice.
