Addressing mental health in the workplace may have once been considered taboo, but studies have proven that partnering with your employees on their wellness journey is better for your bottom line. In fact, the U.S. economy loses $210.5 billion annually due to absenteeism, reduced productivity, and medical costs associated with depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. It is in employers’ best interests to do more to ensure a healthier work environment.

  • Why leaders should care about well-being at work
