    #5 Thank you Lisa, I agree heightening awareness for this so important issue is an imperative, I am aware that Prince William and Princes Kate support CHUMS, a mental health and emotional wellbeing service for children and young people, where they support young people dealing with or affected by suicide, but government, WHO, corporates and charities need to come together to collaborate on such seriousness in today's society.

    #4 The findings are very staggering. Raising awareness, leaders who understand and employees along with the general population learning its ok to be honest about a legitimate illness may be the push society needs. We also need more backing from the medical community as a whole. Thanks for writing about this important topic /issue.

    #2 Thank you so much Lisa for your great comments, I did some research earlier in the year the findings were staggering, the new estimates were released in the lead-up to World Health Day on 7 April, the high point in WHO’s year-long campaign “Depression: let’s talk”. The overall goal of the campaign is that more people with depression, everywhere in the world, both seek and get help. According to the WHO, depression is the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide. The latest estimates account for more than 300 million people are now living with depression, an increase of more than 18% between 2005 and 2015. Lack of support for people with mental disorders, coupled with a fear of stigma, prevent many from accessing the treatment they need to live healthy, productive lives. Investment in mental health makes economic sense. Every US$ 1 invested in scaling up treatment for depression and anxiety leads to a return of US$ 4 in better health and ability to work. Treatment usually involves either a talking therapy or antidepressant medication or a combination of the two. Both approaches can be provided by non-specialist health-workers, following a short course of training, and using WHO’s mhGAP Intervention Guide. More than 90 countries, of all income levels, have introduced or scaled-up programmes that provide treatment for depression and other mental disorders using this Intervention Guide. With the connected world and the increased levels of productivity that we live in I really do not see these statistics improving any time soon. Have a great week!

    Great buzz @Geoff Hudson-Searle. More people suffer from Mental Health issues than are probably reported because they don't seek help due to the stigma still attached in 2017. I have been a strong advocate on behalf of Mental Health because I suffer from Anxiety and Panic disorder. My last employer had no idea I suffered because she and my deputy director actually told me about a Co-worker who had a full blown panic attack at work ( a very dedicated employee), they went on to make fun of her because she had a panic attack, passed out and was shaking while on the floor. The deputy director actually tried to mimic what happened to this poor woman. She mimicked to make fun, not out of compassion. I gave my 2 cents and realized I would never feel I could share my illness with y boss.

    You wrote, "Many people with mental health problems want to work, but they must feel confident that their employer supports them." I could not AGREE more!

    #30 Actually, @Chas Wyatt, it's back in the '70s . . . apostrophe must go where the 19 or 18 or whatever numbers are no longer there . . . in front of 70, not behind it. Does that help?

    And you're in good company; the apostrophe drives many writers nuts!

    So, Ms. Rooks, the apostrophe is my biggest grammatical hangup. Why is it I want to write 'back in the 70's', rather than 'back in the 70s'? Killing two birds with one stone here. It isn't a quote, but, rather, a phrase, so am I to write "back in the 70s", rather than 'back in the 70s'? Please school me. Thank you.

    #23 Hi @Susan Botelho! Nice to see you here.

    Yes, you done good, as is so often said incorrectly!

    The basic American rule, which makes very little sense, says we always put periods and commas inside final quotation marks, even if we're only quoting the last word.

    And I do not believe CD's is widely accepted . . . maybe widely used, but that's a whole different thing.

    One small point with apostrophes and plurals: When we're writing "She got all A's on her tests," the rule usually drops away because it's possible that without the apostrophe a reader could read "As" as "as."

    Now, how's THAT for a clunky sentence?
    Martin Wright
    06/06/2017 #24 Martin Wright
    There are very few who would be so apostolic about the apostrophe.
    Susan 🐝 Botello
    06/06/2017 #23 Susan 🐝 Botello
    This is awesome. I worked with an editor during my graphic design years who worked for a newspaper in the past. I kept editing out the apostrophe from CDs. She then came to me and explained that although technically "CDs" was the correct spelling, it was widely accepted to spell it "CD's."

    Oh, that leads me to the use of quotation marks. That one is confusing at times and I would like to know if I did that right here at the end of my sentence. Thanks for sharing this great article with us who write so much thanks to social media.

    A suggestion as to why in the U.K. we say houses rather than hice is that amongst the Upper Classes house is pronounced hice, therefore they say hices which further confuses the issue.#11

    Impermanence is what will always bother me, but that is what makes nature interesting in that we are a side show to it, a mere blip on its landscape and time span. In that regard no matter what we do to nature, it is designed to have the last laugh on humanity. From there it is a straight line path to appreciating wonder and at this point ideas come into play.
