Putting support in place can help employees navigate stress at work and outside of work. Creating a safe and aware environment and decreasing stigma can reduce the impact on employers and employees.

1. Poor mental health and stress can negatively impact performance and productivity and cause a variety of issues and conflicts in the workplace.

2. According to data released by the Public Health Agency of Canada, 1 in 3 Canadians will be affected by Mental Illness in their lifetime – most of them by the time they reach 40.

3. Mental Illness is also the leading cause of disability in Canada and each individual case is more costly to the employer than a physical injury.

4. Employees facing mental health crisis can be a serious risk for safety in safety sensitive work environments.

5. Supporting employees’ mental health will be a key issue for companies in upcoming years.
