We are a leading voice in breaking down the stigma around mental health by encouraging open, honest conversations on the subject for our people.
It’s not 1 in 4, it’s all of us
In this report prepared by Accenture for This Can Happen, we examine the role of company culture and its impact on younger workers. In particular, the previously held belief that 1 in 4 of us will face a mental health challenge is looked at more closely.
The report reveals that 93 percent of workers in the UK will have been touched by mental health challenges by the age of 30, and that these younger employees are more reluctant to tell their employers about what is going on than their older peers.
Dr. Tamarah Duperval-Brownlee, Accenture Chief Health Officer, Dr. Joneigh S Khaldun, CVS Health Vice President and Chief Health Equity Officer, and Cara McNulty, DPA, President, Behavioral Health and Mental Wellbeing, CVS Health, discuss mental health equity and the importance of meeting people where they are.
