Mental Health Days Really Work/Life Balance Days


What are employees really doing when they take a “mental health day”?

According to a poll by ComPsych, a provider of employee assistance programs, the top five reasons employees take a mental health day are:

  1. Family/relationship issues (30%)

  2. Work stress/workload (20%)

  3. Financial, legal or other personal issues (15%)

  4. Lack of physical energy/well-being (12%)

  5. Boredom/lack of motivation (5%)

Eighteen percent of workers surveyed reported not taking mental health days.
