The short and long-term mental health effects of COVID-19 are a top concern for many, as are the physical consequences. According to the CDC, mental health disorders are among the most burdensome health concerns in the United States. Nearly 1 in 5 adults aged 18 or older (18.3% or 44.7 million people) reported suffering from a mental health condition in 2016, and 1 in 2 are at risk of developing one. And now with the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), stress and anxiety are at an all-time high.
Poor mental health and stress can negatively affect an employee’s job performance and productivity, engagement with their work, communication with coworkers, and even their physical capability to function. Now more than ever, it is extremely important that employers build awareness and provide employees with resources to improve mental health and stress management.
