National Depression Screening Day®

Mood and anxiety disorder screenings for your employees

 

More than Just the Blues: What Untreated Depression Looks Like in Workplace

  • Decreased productivity
  • Absenteeism, tardiness
  • Increased errors, diminished work quality
  • Procrastination, missed deadlines
  • Withdrawal from coworkers
  • Overly sensitive and/or emotional reactions
  • Decreased interest in work
  • Slowed thinking
  • Difficulty learning and remembering
  • Slow movement and actions
  • Frequent comments about being tired all the time



While depression isn’t often talked about in the workplace, it is a hidden cost that is most likely affecting your company’s bottom line. Studies indicate that at least 10% of employees have depression, and on average, a depressed employee loses 32 workdays per year (Archives of Psychiatry, October 2007). This means a loss in productivity and increased absenteeism, disability leave and medical care that some experts believe cost employers an estimated $51 billion per year.

The WorkplaceResponse® National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) program educates employees about signs and symptoms of depression, PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder and bipolar disorder through online self-assessments. The primary goals of the program are to reduce stigma and increase help-seeking.

The WorkplaceResponse program provides your EAP or Human Resources Department with effective tools designed to educate your employees about mental health and the resources available to them.


NDSD online screening program includes:

  • Easily accessible online screening page through a unique, custom, and secure SMH link embedded on your website.
  • Dedicated welcome screen that may be co-branded with organization's logo.
  • Immediate screening feedback for employees
  • Customized referrals back to EAP or other company or community resources.
  • Links to relevant mental health information and resources.
  • Password-protected access to SMH's administration module to customize welcome and referral messages, generate on-demand screening reports, and to add demographic questions.
  • Downloadable educational and promotional materials.
  • Screenings available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
