Abstract

Mental illnesses, particularly Common Mental Disorders (CMDs), including anxiety and depression, are among the leading factors of occupational impairment. Despite clear evidence of their social effects, the strain of CMDs is under-recognized in developing nations. Depression is considered to be the second most prevalent condition globally, after ischemic heart disease, accounting for 15 percent of the overall disease burden (WHO). Mental illnesses are considered to be common in the general population as well as in the workforce, and they severely affect life and role functions. The effects of mental illness include a loss of job performance that has been stated to result in substantial costs for the employer. Any personality condition and any drug use condition, especially severe depression and alcohol addiction, are linked to poor job performance.
