Mental Health in Portland

Mental health conditions have been found to have a significant effect on the world of work today. It is not just about an individual, but it is also about their family, friends, and coworkers. Most notable are the effects that mental health conditions have on productivity. Mental illnesses are known to be one of the leading causes for disability in the workforce today.

Studies have shown that people who are suffering from stress or anxiety-related disorders are more likely to be absent from work or show up late at least five times a month than those who don’t report any mental illness. Those who experience chronic depression, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder or generalized anxiety may also be more likely to miss work at least five times a month.

Some mental health conditions can also lead to memory impairment, lack of clarity, and communication problems that may affect an individual’s ability to function in a job environment. Non-compliance with a prescribed treatment can also have negative consequences not only on the individual but also on their coworkers and employers as well. Drug addiction, gambling addictions, compulsive shopping, alcoholism, sexual addictions, or other behavioral addictions are all examples of this problem that will continue to affect employees’ performance in the workplace.
