Stigma is one of the main reasons.
But more people are also daring to speak out about their mental health problems, coming to terms with the social stigma that is connected to anxiety, depression, and stress, and getting the help they need.
500,000 Canadian workers per week are unable to work due to poor mental health. 30 out of every 1,000 Canadian employees miss work each week because of their mental health. In Canada the cost of productivity loss due to poor mental health adds up to $6.3 Billion each year. But even with these numbers, only 1/3 of Canadian employers have a mental health strategy in place.
