Disability:IN’s Roadmap to Mental Wellness in the Workplace
The goal of Disability:IN’s Roadmap to Mental Wellness in the Workplace is to inspire action, improve workplace productivity, and impact the well-being of millions of employees and their families around the world. By 2020, mental and substance use disorders will surpass all physical diseases as the major causes of disability worldwide (NIH). Many of your employees and their families are impacted by mental illness and this may adversely affect productivity, increase absenteeism, and disrupt teamwork.
