Why employees mental health matters

  • ​In Canada, 500,000 people do not go to work each day because of mental health problems or mental illness. The Mental Health at Work Challenge encourages corporate Canada to implement mental health standards within the workplace to help end the stigma associated with mental illness. ​
  • ​Regardless of increased awareness, there is still a stigma associated with mental illness.
