An estimated 1 in 2 people in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area’s (GTHA) labour force have experienced a mental health issue, and 82% of people surveyed report that mental illness impacts their work. Over the next decade, current mental health issues could cost the GTHA almost $17 billion in lost productivity.
Beyond compassion, there is a strong business case for supporting better mental health in our workplace and appetite to do more. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, while 32% of Canadian business leaders are taking action to support workplace mental health, 42% more are interested, but haven’t taken action due to lack of time, resources, or know-how.
