The Problem:

  • More days of work loss and work impairment are caused by mental illness than many other chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma and arthritis

  • In a three-month period, patients with depression miss an average of 4.8 workdays and suffer 11.5 days of reduced productivity

  • Depression is estimated to cause 400 million lost workdays each year at a cost to employers of $17 to $44 billion
