Mental health - Breaking the culture of silence for LGBT+ employees

  • RECORDED: 27 November 2018


  • Overview

    Mercer and Business in the Community’s Mental Health at Work Report 2018 has raised the spotlight on the real issues LGBT+ employees face in the workplace. The survey uncovers that LGBT+ people are disproportionately more likely to have mental health issues and less likely to talk about their mental health at work.

    Headlines from the survey:

    • 81% of LGBT+ people have experienced a mental health condition.
    • 72% have experienced mental health issues as a result of work.
    • 26% of LGBT employees have hidden or disguised that they are LGBT+ at work because they were afraid of discrimination.
