News on stress, anxiety, and depression

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk and I would like to start by thanking those of you who have sent in your contribution to this week's tidbits and headlines.  So many of us make the serious mistake of not taking the time to look after our mental health.  We often take it for granted and that's where the monsters step in and start causing havoc for us.  Often, our excuse is that we don't have enough time to take a day off, to smell the roses, to treat ourselves to a mental health day, and so on.
If we don't start looking after ourselves then who is going to do it?  Certainly not our employers or our co-workers.  Our family and friends, maybe!  But they have their own problems to deal with as well.  So, we want to help you by giving you a weekly digest of tidbits and headlines.  Take a few minutes to review these and visit the websites to read about it.  What harm can it really do?  In fact, it can do you a lot of good.
At the business desk, I'm Kerry J Harrison wishing you a pleasant day.
