Episode 4: Suicide Prevention in the Workplace

 

The stigma surrounding suicide is real and there is perhaps no place that is harder to talk about it then in the workplace.

It can be seen as a weakness and is not treated as a serious health condition, making it difficult for those suffering to come forward. Employees may feel embarrassed or not no what resources are available for them.

Most people spend 60 per cent of their hours awake at work, making the workplace one of the most important places to be able to speak about mental health and find the proper resources.

Loss of productivity from dealing with mental health issues is estimated to cost Canadian businesses between 15 to 25 billion dollars per year, with mental health issues costing the Canadian economy in total around 50 billion dollars per year.
