Survey: One-Third Of Working Americans Experience Chronic Work Stress.

Forbes (4/7, Blanding) reports that “a 2013 survey by the American Psychiatric Association found that one-third of working Americans experienced chronic work stress, while only 36 percent reported their employers provided adequate support to manage it.” Meanwhile, “according to the National Institute of Mental Health, some 6.7 percent of American adults experience ‘major depressive disorder.” Some companies are now being “proactive about integrating mental health into their wellness programs alongside physical health,” either through Employee Assistance Programs or by changing corporate culture to integrate “life management programs with mental health.”
