In the ageing population (55+) older employees are subject to stress-related diseases such as depression, anxiety, and cardiovascular diseases. Overall Europe this results in a tremendous increase of health care costs on the one hand. Costs related to mental disorders and work-related depression in Europe amounts to about € 240 billion/year, respectively € 620 billion/year. On the other hand, sick leave causes loss of productivity and affects the Gross National Products of the individual countries.
A consortium of ten organisations based in three different European countries recently started a cross-border project, the mHealthINX solution. This consortium will address this important and urgent topic and will provide a user-friendly, coherent and holistic solution to support older employees in promoting and strengthen their mental health.
