Return to Work Strategies for Employees with Mental Health Conditions – Bridges Health

The Mental Health Commission of Canada states that 1 in 5 (20%) Canadians will personally experience mental health illness in their lifetime; currently mental illness is affecting 6.7 million Canadians as compared to 1.4 million affected by heart disease and 2.2 million affected by Type 2 Diabetes. With 1 in 5 diagnosed and 2/3 of Canadians spending 60% or more of their time at work the question becomes “how is this being managed and are there other factors contributing to the wellness of our employees within our workplaces?”
