Mental Health Issues Among Nonprofit Staff

Many people are drawn to nonprofit work because they’ve witnessed or have been impacted by some kind of adversity. They’re committed to righting wrongs, and come into the sector full of passion for and drive toward making a difference. But between long hours, wages that don’t match the private sector, leadership challenges, and highly stressful environments, nonprofit work may actually be contributing to mental illness. One in five adults in North America experience some form of mental illness in a given year, and for one in 25 it’s serious enough to have a major impact on their day-to-day activities. Anecdotal evidence points to these statistics being even higher in the nonprofit arena!
