Presenteeism in the Workplace

Mental health costs employers billions of dollars each year.  Stigma in the workplace is costly and the #1 barrier to treatment.  In this presentation, I share statistics about mental health in the workplace and explore the underutilization of employee assistance programs due to fear of stigma and discrimination in the workplace. I introduce a term called presenteeism and its impact on mental health in the workplace.  I also share my personal story of being a high performing, award winning sales professional navigating the corporate world, while suffering in silence with alcohol abuse disorder, major depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts.
