Mental Wellness and Well-Being Consulting
Did you know that 1 in 5 people struggle with mental health problems? In the US that translates to 44 million people! Worse still, 80% of those people are left with no or insufficient treatment, leading to 33% of disability claims and a yearly economic loss of nearly $200 billion, simply because people miss work due to mental health or stress. That doesn't sound so good, does it?
If we dig a little deeper, we find even worse numbers. Every single day 1 million people in the US miss work because of stress or mental health issues, eventually leading to depression, which, by the way, results in disability more often than chronic physical health conditions.
Looking at it realistically, people in general spend 50% of their waking hours at work, where the have to deal with stress and expectations, and then when they go home, they need to deal with all of their personal issues as well.
On the other hand, this is not a situation without a cure. Mental wellness programs are out there, and opting into one brings a whopping 600% return of investment. This translates to employers gaining $7 for every $1 they invest in their employees mental well-being.
