Mental Health and the Workplace

Mental health problems and illnesses are the leading cause of workplace disability in Canada, representing 15 percent of Canada’s burden of disease. A Canadian Medical Association study in 2008 indicated that only 23 percent of Canadians surveyed said they would feel comfortable talking to an employer about their mental illness. Health Canada asserts that one in five Canadians will suffer some form of mental health trouble in their lifetimes.
