News on stress, anxiety, and depression

Good morning, I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk and I would like to continue my call for more of us to pay closer attention to our mental health.  With levels of stress climbing rapidly in both the workplace and in the home, we need to do something now and this is why we continue to bring you our weekly tidbits and headlines.  If our mental health is struggling, then it only follows that our production both at home and in the workplace will also suffer.  Please take a few minutes and read this week's selections.
At the business desk, I'm Kerry J Harrison wishing you a great day.
