Mental health may well be the costliest employee disability Canadian corporations have ever faced. Estimates place the current annual economic cost of depression and other related illnesses at $33 billion. The Conference Board of Canada recently estimated that 79 per cent of short term disability claims and 67 per cent of long term disability claims during the 2009-2010 period were related to mental health issues. And initiating a claim is just the beginning. Once employees leave work with a mental disorder, a timely return is anything but assured. They must be diagnosed accurately and treated in the early stages of the illness to ensure it recedes and there is the potential for a return to full productivity.
