    Stigma sticks to mental illness in the Australian workplace
    Perth Now
    Australian employees suffering from mental illness are often discriminated at work because of the stigma attached to the topic and managers need to be better trained to deal with it, experts say. Figures show 74 south Australians contacted the state's Equal Opportunity Commission last year seeking information about potential unfair treatment because of mental illness. Experts warn the problem was under-reported amid fears it was just the tip of the iceberg, particularly in the state's workplaces.

    Mental health loses funding as government continues shutdown
    Forbes
    As federal and state governments look to cut budgets at every turn, mental and behavioral health services are often on the chopping block first. Financial cuts, compounded with U.S. stigma often applied to mental health troubles and disparate access to services across the county, mean that those who need services most are often those left without proper care.

    Suicides among Army soldiers rise, most caused by underlying mental illnesses
    The Medical Daily
    The U.S. military's effort to prevent suicide among the ranks has yielded mixed results, according to analysts, with some decreases among soldiers serving on active duty — perhaps given improved social support and mental health screenings. But suicides have risen among reserve component soldiers not on active duty, Army officials said.

    How can mental health problems be handled in the workplace?
    Workplace Law
    Researchers state that mental ill health is usually caused by a combination of pressures at work and at home, saying that increasing worries about debt, rising bills and job insecurity, as the economy continues to remain depressed, may therefore lead to a further surge in mental ill health. "It's important for managers to look after their employees' interests, by regularly assessing the demands their employees may be under from their work, and also taking into account any excessive stress they may be feeling from their home-life too," said Dr. Jill Murray, a study author.
