Depression and Anxiety in the Workplace
Description: Depression and anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problems in Canada and the fastest growing category of disability costs for Canadian employers. These disorders affect the individual, their family, friends and co-workers. Beyond the human cost, unaddressed mental health problems and illnesses in the workplace have a significant impact on productivity and the bottom line.
What can employers do to create mentally healthy workplaces and support their employees? Hear from Julie Holden at SEB Benefits & HR Consulting Inc. about the signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety, the impact of these conditions on workplace productivity, and the promising practices and strategies that workplaces can adopt to address these issues.
