Diversity & Inclusion Roundtable: Dr Barbara Mariposa - Depression in the workplace

Depression is predicted to be the biggest causes of ill health globally by 2020. And yet it is still an illness that is shrouded in mystery and silence despite its considerable risks to life and its quality.


Join us for this roundtable where Dr Barbara Mariposa will discuss:  

- examining the facts,  figures and costs to individuals and companies

- look at current thinking and evidence about who gets ill and why

- dig into what it’s like to be ill, the risks and what it looks like from the outside

- explore the major protective factors

- how to offer help to someone who seems to be unwell

- learn about what we can do to take better care of ourselves and each other
