Study finds depression treatment increases productivity

Canada’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health has found that employees treated for depression are more likely to be highly productive. This study testing the correlation between depression treatment and work productivity is the first of its kind. The study analyzed data from a large-scale community survey of 3,000 employees in the Canadian region of Alberta. Data showed that moderately and severely depressed employees on treatment are 2.5 and seven times more productive, respectively, than those depressed and not on treatment. Researchers say that this data should encourage employers to provide moral support and facilitate treatment for depressed employees.
