In 2019, worker mental health represented a salient but relatively uncommon issue for Northern Virginia employers: approximately 11 percent of working adults were experiencing mild anxiety or depression, and 7 percent fell into a clinical range.

The new report, The Economic Impact of Mental Health in Northern Virginia, is a collaboration between the Center for Regional Analysis at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government and the nonprofit Community Foundation for Northern Virginia. It will be released to the public during a presentation on Thursday, October 12, at the foundation’s headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. Registration details can be found here.
