How can we use technology to solve mental health problems affecting productivity?

According to South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG), the law in South Africa states that an employee with a mental health condition has a constitutional right to equality, human dignity, reasonable accommodation, and fair labor practice.  An employer therefore cannot demote or transfer a person or reduce a salary because of a mental health condition.  Therefore, prevention and treatment of poor mental health is imperative to productivity and overall economic development.  In 2014, the Sunday Times published a report titled ‘South Africa’s sick state of mental health’ and noted that one-third of South Africans suffer from severe mental illness, with only 25% able to receive treatment.

The IDEA study of the London School of Economics and Political Science said depression cost South Africa more than R232 Billion (5.7% of the country’s GDP) due to lost productivity either due to absence from work or attending work whilst unwell in 2016.
