MENTAL HEALTH
MATTERS IN THE
WORKPLACE
DEFINITION OF MENTAL HEALTH
Mental health is a state of
wellbeing in which an individual
realises his or her own abilities,
can cope with the normal stresses
of life, can work productively and
is able to make a contribution to
his or her community (World
Health Organisation).
It affects how we think,
feel, and act. It also
helps determine how
we handle stress, relate
to others, and make
choices.
Work can have a huge
impact on mental health –
it can promote wellbeing or
alternatively it can trigger
problems.
Mental health includes our
emotional, psychological, and
social wellbeing.
Globalization has
contributed to work-
related stress and its
associated disorders.
MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORK PLACE
One in five people at
the workplace
experience a mental
health condition.
Frequently, people with
mental illness conceal
their illness for fear of
discrimination when
looking for or keeping a
job.
Stigma and lack of
awareness of mental
health at the workplace
persist as barriers to
equality.
IMPLICATIONS OF MH AT THE WORK PLACE
Mental health problems have a direct impact on workplaces through increases
in the following:
Absenteeism
Presenteeism
Depression at the workplace is a leading cause of lost work
productivity, sick leave and premature retirement.
Disability Claims
