According to the Center for Prevention and Health Services, 217 million days of work are lost annually due to productivity decline related to mental illness and substance abuse. One in five Americans has a treatable mental health disorder, yet few seek help or treatment, at a cost of billions to our nation’s economy. There are well documented and definitive links between physical and mental health, yet we treat these issues differently. More companies are finding ways to address mental health in the work place, but the pace of change is slow. What can NH companies do now to ensure employees have access to appropriate services and how do we eliminate the stigma surrounding the disease of mental illness or emotional distress? Join us for a panel discussion, where business leaders can get practical advice on how to better ensure the workplace is receptive and responsive to those who need help.
