But affordable, effective, and meaningful help is available through Depression Recovery Groups services.

Our Mission
Depression is one of the costliest employment problems. In a 1,000 employee company, on average 66 employees will be impaired by depression annually. This results in:
  • Absenteeism of up to 2,106 days
  • Replacement worker costs of $345,000
  • Increased medical costs over $131,000
Use the Depression Cost Calculator to find out how your organization is affected by depression.

Our Mission
Presenteeism is the problem of workers being on the job but, because of medical conditions, not fully functioning and less able to work effectively.

A study in the October 2004 American Journal of Psychiatry demonstrated that Major Depressive Disorder has a significant impact on worker productivity:

"The most important finding is the consistency with which depression is associated with negative measures on both productivity and task focus. Previous studies have shown that the amount of work lost to depression just looking at absenteeism is about one day a month. Our study found that presenteeism accounts for a total of about 2.3 lost work-days a month. So it appears that the productivity lost by depressed people at work may be larger than that lost from absenteeism."
