Making The Business Case
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, giving employers an advantage to promote mental health at work and provide resources for employees. In the United States, 1 in 5 adults experiences mental illness. Depression and anxiety have a significant economic impact; the estimated cost to the global economy is US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity. The global pandemic has contributed greatly to a rise in these numbers. As the nation’s workforce continues its return to work, it is important that Mental Health remains at the forefront of employer concerns and initiatives.
May Is Mental Health Month Toolkit
Mental health is always important, but with the lingering effects of the pandemic and a shift in "returning to normal," it is at the top of the priority list.

Topics include, resiliency, self-care, isolation and loneliness, real strategies to show your support, and more.
