The Sharing Campaign

 
Did you know 76% of employees report having struggled with an issue that affected their mental health.1 This could range from stress, insomnia or changes in relationships to depression or more serious issues. Others may be living with a loved one who is experiencing a mental health disorder.

Mental health issues can be chronic if not addressed, impacting your ability to bring your best self to work.

Sharing with the right people is proven to help. Eighty percent of individuals can be treated quickly and effectively, especially when symptoms are recognized early. Yet, 50% to 60% of adults with mental disorders do not receive the mental health services they need.2 Find out if your employer has resources to help.
