Mental health

Today’s workshop was centered upon mental health and how it shows up in the workplace.  It began with an officer sharing his life long journey with significant depression and his diagnosis of mania. Then the story of the family. It was very moving,  very moving. 

The stats, the resources, the profiles are unbelievable.  Frightening to know how under resourced this illness is. Adjustment disorder, general anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder were in our discussion.

It is clear to me that we need to talk more about this. We need to understand more.
