MHFA India: Building Mentally Healthy
Workplaces and Campuses

It is concerning to note that approximately 15% of working-age adults are estimated to have a mental disorder at any given time. Common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety have a significant global economic impact, costing the US $1 trillion annually, primarily due to lost productivity. In India, research indicates that every second person in the workforce reports experiencing depression or anxiety. Additionally, about 80% of individuals facing mental health problems do not seek out support.

The increasing concern about the impact of mental health problems has made it a global priority. Organized groups, such as workplaces and educational institutions, have a crucial role to play in leading conversations and taking action on mental health and illness to bring about positive change.

Many corporations have recognized this responsibility and are actively engaging with MHFA programs. Their motivation stems from the desire to create mentally and physically safe spaces, which, in turn, contribute to building healthy and sustainable businesses. By fostering a culture of support and understanding, workplaces can contribute to improved employee mental health, leading to increased productivity, job satisfaction, and overall well-being.
