In today’s world, seven out of 10 employees are struggling. Traditional Employee Assistance Plans (EAPs) only have about a 4% participation rate.

A recent WHO-led study estimates that US $1 trillion in productivity is lost each year due to mental health issues in the workplace.  Another statistic is that disengaged employees cost the economy $550 billion annually. The numbers are staggering.

In areas outside of the workplace, mental health issues continue to grow at unprecedented rates. From college campuses to retirement communities, well-being is at risk as we continue to live in uncertain times.

Navigating Uncertainty offers an essential, quick reference for busy people who want to live well. It is for anyone who has a functional level of anxiety or stress and is looking for tools to promote their own journey towards greater well-being. Lanum introduces 26 topics (literally an A to Z) related to well-being, with resources from over 100 of today’s scientists and thought leaders. Clever, accessible, and backed by science, Navigating Uncertainty: An A-Z Guide For Well-Being is an invaluable guide for anyone living in today’s uncertain times.

Teens are struggling with mental health amid the isolation and trauma caused by the pandemic, according to survey data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The survey, conducted in the first six months of 2021, found four in 10 adolescents said they feel “persistently sad or hopeless,” and one in five said they have contemplated suicide.  “These data echo a cry for help,” said Debra Houry, a deputy director at the CDC.
