  • TELUS Mental Health Index: Workers under 40 most isolated and lonely

March 2024

According to a recent TELUS Mental Health Index, employees under 40 in Canada feel the most isolated and lonely. Based on the index, nearly half (45%) of young workers indicated that they do not have trustworthy relationships at work, which is a factor that can lead to poor mental and physical health. 

Key findings from the TELUS Mental Health Index:

  • Thirty-three percent of workers in Canada have a high mental health risk, 45 percent have a moderate mental health risk, and 22 percent have a low mental health risk.
  • One in ten workers in Canada (10 percent) do not feel valued and respected by their colleagues; this group has the lowest and worst mental health score (49.1), 20 points lower than workers feeling valued and respected (69.1).
  • Women are 50 percent more likely than men to report that harassment, bullying, unhealthy conflict and other harmful behaviours are not quickly and fairly resolved in their workplace.
  • More than one in seven (15 percent) rate their company‚Äôs culture around mental health as negative.
  • Twenty-one percent of workers in Canada do not know if their employer provides mental health benefits or their employer does not provide mental health benefits.
