Out Of The Depths: Combating Depression In The Workplace
The World Health Organization of the United Nations proposed that Depression would be the leading cause of disease burden by 2020...and it absolutely was.
Untreated Depression is costly - personally, corporately and socially. We know that mental health claims are the fastest growing category of disability costs and that the workplace is an important venue for detection, support and connection to treatment.

“…Beverly’s presentation was excellent – the topic was extremely relevant and the presentation was polished and professional. She connected with the audience and based on the very positive feedback from the attendees re this session, motivated them to reevaluate how they currently handle multiple demands in an ever-changing environment and to consider new strategies for managing both their own stress and that of the employees reporting to them. I would certainly consider hiring Beverly again and would not hesitate to recommend her to others…”
