Mental health may well be the costliest employee disability Canadian corporations have ever faced. Estimates place the current annual economic cost of depression and other anxiety related illnesses at $33 billion. This includes the direct cost of funding extended mental health disability claims – some insurance companies report between 40 and 50 per cent of all clams today relate to mental illnesses. And that’s just the beginning. Once employees leave work with a mental disorder, a timely return is anything but assured. They must be diagnosed accurately and treated in the early stages of the illness to ensure it recedes and there is potential for a return to full productivity.
