A growing body of research suggests that young workers are increasingly

adding mental health days to their personal days, and young women are

particularly at risk.


Millennials report higher rates of depression than any other generation and

are now the biggest sector of the workforce, creating new challenges in work

culture and mental health treatment. And they're not alone: Recent research

shows depression is becoming more prevalent in younger women. Between 2005

and 2014 the number of depressed teens jumped by more than half a million,

three-fourths of which were teenage girls according to a recent study in the

journal Pediatrics. These mental health struggles are extending themselves

into the workplace, with millennial women far more likely than their male

counterparts to experience burn out and depression.
