WINNIPEG, Oct. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - More than one in five (22 per cent) of Canadian employees report they are currently suffering depression (14 per cent diagnosed) while an additional 16 per cent report having experienced depression previously, according to the latest national Ipsos Reid survey tracking depression in the workplace. Further, 84 per cent of managers and supervisors continue to believe it is part of their job to intervene when an employee is showing signs of depression, comparable to 2007 findings. Both surveys were commissioned and funded by the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace to help define and respond to mental health issues in the workplace.
