- 95% of (30 year-olds) have been touched by mental health challenges — either their own, or those of a friend, family member, or colleague. Three out of four have experienced personal challenges.
- four in 10 of workers under 26 reported they had received no information or advice about taking care of their mental health before entering the workforce as part of their education
- Cost of mental illness to employers: $44.6 billion and $56.7 billion/ year (an independent review)
- in organizations that emphasize the importance of mental health, employees of all ages are almost four times more likely to say that work has a positive influence on them. Moreover, young employees were almost 37% less likely to have faced a recent mental health challenge, but twice as likely to say they can or could cope with one at work.
