Mental health and the workplace

Here's an excellent article on talking about mental health issues from the Wall Street Journal, that has a link inside to the main piece written today about managing risk in the workplace from mental illness.  Both these articles discuss mental illness, primarily depression, from the perspective of the employee who may uneasy about using any free services offered for fear that it will affect his/her career path.

The second chapter of Advice From A Risk Detective currently includes a discussion of violence in the workplace and a checklist of symptoms for others to be alert to, along with steps to take if employees feel at risk from a colleague.
