A survey showed that nearly all CEOs in Hong Kong have had bouts of mental health issues amid immense pressures over the struggling economy. Also, according to a Bupa Global survey, 60% of the city’s high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) and 96% of its CEOs disclosed they had symptoms of poor mental health in the past 12 months. HNWIs are defined as people whose annual salary and investments are over USD1m a year. The major worries that keep CEOs awake at night are meeting environmental, social, and governance goals (37%), work-life balance (27%), and economic uncertainty or recession (25%).
