Employers across the globe now recognize that protecting and supporting the mental health of employees is vital to the future of their business. This newfound awareness comes as the world enters the third year of the pandemic, and little is normal about the way we live and work. In 2021, the disruptions and mental health fallout from COVID-19, economic uncertainty, and social unrest continued, affecting even more of the workforce than in 2020. Meanwhile, more employees dealt with mental health challenges over the past year, from stress and burnout to anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance use problems. Mental health issues like burnout have contributed to many workers’ decisions to leave their jobs, if not the workforce entirely. “The pandemic has forced people to reflect on what really matters most to them, and if their employer does not support their ability to prioritize other values outside of work, then people may look elsewhere, or they may risk becoming burned out and frustrated,” said Joe Grasso, Lyra Health’s senior director of workforce mental health.
