"Nearly 60 percent of individuals who have depressive symptoms do not seek treatment", says the report.

How can you help someone with a mental health issue get the help they need? Will I have to be on medication all of my life?

Again, those who recognize the symptoms of depression were much more likely to recommend professional help than those who didn't recognize the symptoms. The same goes for mental health: we can equip people with key social and emotional skills that have a promotional and preventative effect on mental health, as well as having a supportive impact for those with existing mental health conditions.

The research, conducted amongst 2,000 van owners and operators, highlighted that nearly one in five van drivers describes their current mental health as poor or very poor, with three-quarters commenting that work is a contributory factor. Don't compare yourself to others, fresh air and sunshine. "That stuff wears you down".

Yet I remain concerned that we are still far too focused on broad-brush solutions, which fit within the rubric laid down by DHBs. While inevitably there will be situations in which sickness absence is medically necessary or the most appropriate solution, very often it may at the same time increase the employee's feelings of isolation and so exacerbate the problem.

Guevara will also speak on "When a Mental Condition Hits Close to Home: Helping a Family Member with Mental Illness" at Valley Baptist-Brownsville's monthly Mall Walkers event on Wednesday, May 17 at 9 a.m.at Luby's Cafeteria in Sunrise Mall.

Daniela Giordano of the National Alliance on Mental Illness in CT said that even people in "blue" states, which have pledged not to take advantage of the provisions, may not be immune from changes in the future.

The nature of running a small business means that tasks and opportunities throw themselves up at irregular moments, but you can help combat stress by setting a routine, however flexible.

Mr Burns heard from Port Lincoln and Eyre Peninsula residents to hear about what was needed for mental health services to help create a Mental Health Strategic Plan for the state. I am not saying this doesn't affect women and girls - it does. I wanted more effective linkages and co-ordination between District Health Boards and the large number of community agencies active in the mental health and addictions space, both to develop services better tailored to people's needs and also to bridge, wherever, possible, gaps in service provision.

It is important to remember that there is help available and there is no need to suffer in silence.

"You keep talking to them". This series supports The Globe and Mail and Morneau Shepell's Employee Recommended Workplace Award, which honours companies that put the health and well-being of their employees first.

One senior leader, who was frustrated by the increased mental health claims in his organization, said to me, "this mental health stuff is all in their heads". If you have a bad day, accept it as such but work hard on getting better.

"It would be really helpful if we developed a curriculum where we [encourage] people to ask questions about their mental health, their spiritual health if you will, their behavioral health as well as about their physical health". You can freephone the Samaritans, any time, on 116 123.
