Stress, Anxiety, and Depression in the Workplace


Who's Job Is It, Anyway?

Mental health challenges in our community have been a growing issue and employers are taking notice. Stress, anxiety, and depression can consume not only an individual, but a family, a department, and a community. Join GDAHC and our expert panel in the conversation as we explore the prevalence of mental health challenges affecting our workforce and learn about what can be done to help change course. This event will cover:

  • The prevalence of depression and mental health issues in the workplace
  • Cost of depression for employers
  • Impact of stress, depression, anxiety and other mental illness in the workplace
  • Options for workplaces that can help prevent and address challenges
  • Real working strategies utilized by large and small scale corporations
