As of 2022, mental health concerns contribute to the highest disease burden in the general population and the linkage between psychosocial risk factors at work and stress-related disorders is clear.In Wysa’s ‘All Worked Up’ report, we heard employees describe barriers like stigma and lack of awareness, and why it is hard to reach out for help. Employers still have a lot of work to do to truly expand access to mental health at work.
There is an absence of global data on employee mental health, with most analysis restricted to developed countries. Even in those reports, the voice of the employee is notable in its absence. This report hopes to address this gap, and build the economic case for adding AI as the first step of care.
