Mental health in the workplace
About 38.2% of the EU populations suffers from some form of psychological condition yearly, according to most recent studies. At an organizational level, studies indicate that a low state of mental health and wellbeing is closely tied to poor business performance (Kivimaki and 2003 collab. Michie 2002, Spurgeon, Harrington and Cooper). This can lead to many unnecessary costs that each and every company bears.
Within the European Union, on a global scale:
- 5% of the national budget is assigned to mental health
- The yearly budget assigned to treating depression is 42 billion EUR
- The yearly budget assigned to treating anxiety is 62 billion EUR
