How much do we actually know about
workplace mental health?
Mind Share Partners' 2019 Mental Health at Work Report surfaces the lived experience of mental health and stigma in workplaces in the U.S.
While countries like the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia have made substantial progress in awareness of and support for mental health in the workplace, the U.S. is only just beginning. Research on the prevalence of mental health challenges and stigma, specifically in the workplace setting, is limited. Prevalence is often measured either through diagnoseable conditions or general stress levels, which does not fully capture the breadth of the mental health experience.
Our report aims to broaden the current understanding of the mental health experience and its impact on workplaces and employees beyond diagnostic prevalence. We hope that the findings in this report provide valuable context, insights, and motivation for companies in the U.S. to create workplace environments that support employee mental health.
Preview of Findings
Commitment to diversity
Mental health is the next frontier of diversity and inclusion, and our 2019 Mental Health at Work Report includes statistically significant response sizes for demographic communities including women, racial and ethnic minorities, age groups, the LGBTQ+ community, and the transgender community.
Many of these populations have been historically underrepresented in the workplace and underresearched in mental health, and their voices are an important part of making lasting and inclusive change in the workplace mental health movement.
