Suicide Prevention; Start That Conversation

A former writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Frank King uses his lifetime battle with depression and his skills as a full time comedian and speaker as a vehicle for social change. Tailored presentations are available for human resource departments, colleges and universities, workplace or company functions. Depression is the most common mental health disorder in the workplace 1 and affects about one in 10 employees. Mental illness, when untreated or under-treated, often manifests as a performance issue, such as absenteeism or compromised productivity. The annual economic, indirect cost of mental illnesses is estimated to be at least $79 billion. Most of that amount--approximately $63 billion--reflects the cost of lost productivity. Mental illness causes more days of work loss and work impairment than chronic health conditions such as diabetes, asthma, arthritis, back pain, hypertension, and heart disease. Solution?
