I find this such a big issue - yet so often missed:

How do mental health issues affect productivity in the workplace?

* 222.7 million days of work are lost each year because of absences and problems pertaining to depression, costing companies $51.5 billion. (National Institute of Mental Health)
* Employees with depression who received support were 40% more likely to recover and 70% more like to stay employed, compared to a control group. (Journal of the American Medical Association 9/07)
* 9% of employees felt anxious or depressed, and those employees accounted for 40% of lost productivity. (Cisco Systems, Inc.)
