The World Health Organization (WHO) information sheet on mental health in the workplace states that globally, more than 300 million people suffer from depression and anxiety, and this costs the global economy sh100 trillion each year in lost productivity. Loss, specifically death of loved ones, adds to the complexity of mental health of employees.
Workplaces that promote mental health and support people with mental disorders are more likely to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and benefit from associated economic gains.
