The economic impact of depression costs
$210.5 billion (half in direct healthcare
costs and half in workplace absence, disability
and presenteeism),(1) and causes 400 million
lost workdays(2) each year.


A recent study by the National Behavioral Consortium showed that out of every 100 covered employees, only 4.5 of them are using EAP counseling services.


That same study showed 1.2 percent took advantage of EAP organizational services and 1.6 percent used work-life services.(3) Time constraints and other challenges have prevented employers from helping employees take the right steps with EAPs.



Enter Right Direction


Right Direction is an educational initiative for employers that:


  • Raises awareness about depression in the workplace.
  • Promotes recognition of early warning signs.
  • Reduces stigma that serves as a barrier to getting help.

As an EAP, Right Direction provides you with resources that your clients can use to more effectively engage with you and increase utilization rates.
