  • Poll: Workplaces make gains, but some stigma toward depression remains

    At the same time as more workplaces are responding to depression at a "remarkable" pace, some stigma still remains toward the mood disorder, with some Canadians saying they believe that people choose to be depressed, according to a new survey. Seven out of 10 surveyed Canadians said that there needs to be a way to verify that someone is actually suffering from depression before they're given any special consideration at work, according to a new survey of 6,624 working Canadians conducted by polling company Ipsos Reid for the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace.

    To encrypt email or not to encrypt email? Practical answers to a question that is surprisingly complex
    JD Supra    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Health care providers frequently ask us whether they have to encrypt emails, particularly those sent to patients who have asked for an emailed copy of their health records. Since patients have a right to receive electronic copies of their health records, emailing them a copy when they ask for it seems like the right thing to do. Unfortunately, the decision actually is more complicated. More

    Men at work — as caregivers
    The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Agencies and private firms are rolling out new tools and services to help the growing number of men taking on the role of family caregiver – many of whom are still trying to hold down their day jobs. Although the traditional stereotype of a family member taking care of an elderly relative is a wife, daughter or daughter-in-law, 45 percent of Americans in that role are men, according to a Pew Research Center report published in July. It was based on interviews with more than 3,000 adults in 2010. More

    10 things that employees won't say
    The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Employees aren't going to say that they just need a break from feeling overworked when they call in sick – and play hooky instead. But in today's workplaces, the number of workers faking sick days is on the rise, as Sarah Morgan writes. More

    Better balance, better business
    The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Work-life balance is much more complex than it was a generation ago. It's not just about where we are – it's about how we live. Today, we have the ability and technology to be constantly connected. We can check email at the dinner table, or negotiate a deal from the bleachers of a soccer game without speaking a word. We can, but that doesn't necessarily mean we should. More



    Workplace bullying is a chronic corporate disease
    EHS Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Stories of workplace bullying are commonplace throughout the United States – with thousands of employees miserable at work as a result – says Rakesh Malhotra, who believes that bullying is a character trait that tends to be condoned in this country. In general, there are no legal repercussions for non-physical bullying except in specific cases, such as sexual harassment, says Malhotra, the founder of Five Global Values and a world-traveled, values-driven business leader who specializes in organization behavior. Bullies win by controlling situations and people around them. More

    Longtime cop counseling program wins Harvard innovation award
    The Standard-Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    In 2003, as part of his investigation into the homicide of 2-year-old Joshua Santos at the hands of his mother's boyfriend, Detective Christopher Cotter participated in a mandatory debriefing with advisers from the city's Employee Assistance Program in New Bedford, Mass. The experience was so helpful it convinced him to sign up as a volunteer peer counselor. "That was my first dealing with EAP, and I just saw the benefit of it ... that you're not alone," he said of his participation in the Police Peer Helper Program, which the city celebrated recently after it was recognized as one of 111 "Bright Ideas" by the Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation.

    Employers alone can't fix workplace depression
    CBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Workplace depression is a significant and possibly growing problem, medical practitioners are saying. But at the same time they don't believe employers can shoulder the full burden of improving mental health in the office. With the pressures of home life, child care and maybe financial worries all playing a role, how do you teach people to deal with stress? More



    Military study: Can dietary supplements prevent soldier suicides?
    Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    It sounds too good to be true: Throw back a few pills each day, and enjoy a remarkable boost in mental health – while suffering none of the side effects common to mainstream pharmaceutical interventions. Now, the military wants to find out if this idyllic scenario can be transformed into a reality, and one that could curb the growing number of suicides among soldiers and veterans. Recently, they announced a three-year, $10 million study on whether omega-3 supplements can work as preventive medicine for at-risk personnel. More
