Employee benefits and workplace concerns surrounding mental health and substance abuse in the U.S. and Canada were examined in this survey report. While the impact is difficult to measure, organizations in both countries are beginning to articulate how depression, alcohol and prescription drug abuse, anxiety and sleep deprivation affect their workforces.
Respondents were asked how prevalent specific conditions are in their workplaces. More than three in five (62%) stated that depression is prevalent in their organizations, followed by alcohol addiction (50%), anxiety disorders (50%), sleep deprivation (39%), prescription drug addiction (32%) and nonprescription drug addiction (29%).
To address these concerns, more than nine in ten (93%) of survey respondents stated that they offer some sort of mental health/substance abuse benefits.
