News on stress, anxiety, and depression

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk.  How many of you take a mental health day off whenever you get mentally tired?  When was the last time you did so?  How many of you wish that you can take a mental health day off but you either are unable to do so because your manager won't let you or you can't spare the time?
Stress, anxiety and depression are on the rise and we have to act now if we have any hope of saving ourselves and our minds from these three monsters.  Where ever you look stress, anxiety, and depression are present.  Almost everyone in the workplace these days is stressed out about something or other and in the home it is not much different.  I know, it is very difficult to spend the time to research these three topics and this is why we want to help.  We want to help you deal with stress, anxiety, and depression before it is too late and this week our suite of tidbits and headlines are the latest for you to review.  We have collected a sample of the latest news from around the world.  Please take a few minutes and review them.  It won't hurt you and it will definitely save you a lot of time, and above all a lot of grief.  Remember, one cannot be productive unless their mind is healthy.
At the business desk, I'm Kerry J Harrison wishing you a pleasant day.
