Time for a mental checkup

Good evening!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk and I say that it's time for all of us to have a mental health checkup.  Yes, it's long overdue and as part of my evidence, I have chosen a number of stories and news clippings to back up my call.  Please, take some time to review these and take the first step to a mental health checkup.  Remember now, stress, anxiety, and depression wait for no man and time is always on their side.
Have a great day.
