Each year, 1 in 5 US adults are affected by a mental health condition; more than half of them (55%) receive no treatment.1 Even so, optimism seems to be the trend. 64% of companies agree with the statement, “our organization creates and nurtures a culture of well-being.”2

Over half of employers agree that expanding their workforce’s use of mental and emotional health resources is a priority.
