Millennials hit hard by depression in the workplace

…Research conducted by human resources consulting and technology company Morneau Shepell found roughly one-third of the Canadian workforce is struggling with depression and anxiety.   Studying 1,019 Canadians working in a variety of industries, Morneau Shepell found those under the age of 30 were two times more likely to take a mental health sick leave. “The younger the age group, the more stress they are under,” says Paula Allen, vice-president of research and integrative solutions for Morneau Shepell.  Pace of societal change and the erosion of social supports were identified as the primary reasons why younger generations are experiencing mental health issues.
