To help employers better understand and support the mental health needs of their employees, IBI conducted an analysis of the impact of work disruptions of COVID-19. Three research questions guided the analyses:
- How do work disruptions – being on leave, teleworking within the household, and having children home from school – affect mental health?
- How do demographics differ in the relationship between work disruptions and mental health?
- How do health care needs – delaying or skipping medical care, unmet mental health counseling needs, and taking a mental health prescription medication – affect the relationship between work disruptions and mental health?
The infographic highlights some of the main findings from the analyses.
