Workplace

The Business Case

The costs associated with untreated mental illness in the workplace—numbering in the billions of dollars—far outweigh the costs of providing treatment. When employees do receive effective treatment for mental illnesses, the result are seen in lower total medical costs, increased productivity, lower absenteeism and presenteeism, and decreased disability costs.

Other Impact Areas

At the APA Foundation, we focus on the nation's most pressing social mental health issues across our society.

Schools

By providing resources to teachers, we can help connect millions of children affected by mental illness to care.
