Mental Health America has reported a 634% rise in their online tool for anxiety, and an 873% increase in depression screening.
Yet for many, an internet search is where it stops. Many employees still feel uncomfortable confiding in anyone at work if they’re struggling. Despite 51% of employees reporting worse mental health at work since Covid began, the stigma associated with opening up remains (NIHCM).
The screening is followed by a panel discussion to make the learning specific to corporate / industry challenges, and where confidential questions can be asked.
The message is incredibly powerful and liberating when combined with testimonials / experiences of company leaders.
...to remove the stigma, encourage people to reach out and direct them to specific company resources, as well as tools and tips that are provided with the Angst screening.

Companies have ramped up EAP Services and uptake has got better, but they are still not being fully utilized. The link between benefits and awareness / confidence to take advantage of what is available is often lost.
Depression and anxiety conditions cost the global economy $1 trillion a year, pre-Covid. We know that investing in mental health and wellness makes sense: The WHO estimates that a $1 investment in the treatment of depression and anxiety yields a $4 return.

HPE has shown Angst to its employees on an annual basis for the past 3 years in the US; 2 years globally. They follow live screenings a 30-day license, taking advantage of word of mouth and allowing employees to stream the film and panel discussion as many times as they wish during this period.
We’ve heard tremendous feedback and stories from many who benefited from watching the film and sharing it with their families.

Pre-Covid, MGW hosted Angst via a series of in-person screenings. Over time these have transitioned to live virtual screenings plus follow-on viewing licenses across the globe. MGW liked the format and impact of Angst so much, they have also adopted international screenings of LIKE and The Upstanders, the other two films in iNDIEFLIX’s Mental Health Trilogy.
I think the films are a really good way to start that conversation...it just gives you tools and things to think about, so don’t be afraid to offer them.
