Depression often unrecognized and cutting job productivity, study says
Canadians and their co-workers might be depressed and not even realize it, according to a report on workplace health.
A survey of working-age adults in Ontario found that nearly 40 per cent were experiencing significant symptoms of depression but more than half of that group (52.8 per cent) didn’t recognize a need to seek help.
The findings have been published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
