According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, mental health is the fastest-growing disability claim in Canada’s workplace. In fact, 21.4% of the working population currently experiences mental health problems that can affect productivity. Much of that is made up of individuals in their prime working age of 25 to 54.
The reality is: individuals with mental health problems work in C-suites, storefronts, in film and TV, in factories and offices, and in every other type of workplace that Canada has to offer.
- Mental health problems affect one in five Canadians every year;
- Mental illness is an economic, as well as a health-outcome problem;
