  • Why is serious mental illness in young adults missed so often?
    TakePart
    Most serious mental illnesses — seriously debilitating conditions like schizophrenia and psychosis — start when people are in their teens or as young adults. If they're caught and treated very early, the severity of the illness can often be curbed. That's why it's painful to hear that a wide range of people — doctors, parents, teachers and the victims themselves — so often miss the early signs of mental illness during these young years, thus failing to get them prompt medical treatment and leading to much worse financial and social costs as the illness goes untreated.

    Health advocacy a growing benefit

Among organizations that offer wellness program incentives, 12 percent provide incentives for the use of health care navigators or advocates, according to a NBGH/Fidelity survey.

    Primary care doctors welcome mental health professionals
    The Denver Post
    A growing number of primary care doctors in the Denver metro area are opening their doors to mental health professionals to help treat their patients — part of a trend toward integrating health services. Rather than sending patients away with a scribbled phone number and telling them to make an appointment with a psychologist, these doctors can pull the in-house clinician into a patient's room for an instant consult.

    Monitoring upends balance of power at workplace, some say
    Los Angeles Times
    In a drive to cut costs and improve efficiency, companies are employing an ever-increasing array of tracking and monitoring technology to see what their employees are doing at all times. For companies, it makes sense: In a globalized world, anyone who doesn't cut costs could soon be out of business. But the monitoring is changing the relationship between employers and employees, further upsetting the balance of power in the workplace.

    Recession gets the blame for recent uptick in employee theft
    Business Insurance
    When times get tough, employees may be tempted to steal from their employers, as was evidenced by the uptick in employee theft and dishonesty that occurred during the most recent economic downturn. Given that it often takes 18 months to uncover incidents of employee theft, most of the occupational fraud that occurred during the recession are just now coming to light, according to a report published by the Austin, Texas-based Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

    Legislator: Rutgers' Rice shows need for anti-bullying laws
    Philadelphia Inquirer
    The videotaped ravings of Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice — fired recently — show the need for anti-bullying laws at colleges, New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg and Congressman Rush Holt said. The two lawmakers had previously introduced a bill requiring colleges and universities to include a policy statement prohibiting harassment by students, faculty and staff. It also authorizes grants for programs to prevent bullying.

    Well-being the '2nd revolution' for women in the workplace
    Women's Agenda
    While the corporate world may have come to appreciate the necessity of female talent, and the need to ensure such talent is treated fairly through the provision of incentives and programs, the revolution has done little to improve the well-being of women. For many, it's seen their well-being adversely affected.

    Stanford philosopher seeks to create more just and fair workplace for caregivers
    Stanford News
    While federal programs like the Family and Medical Leave Act and the National Family Caregiver Support Program mitigate some of the physical and financial tolls of caregiving, Stanford philosopher Sara Mrsny says that current policies leave the majority of caregivers in an unfair position. Mrsny is pursuing a philosophical investigation of the topic by examining research from the social sciences and other disciplines to make a case for why additional laws are needed that support caregivers and accommodate them in workplaces.
