Learn More about Depression
Although depression is a common illness, it is often underdiagnosed and undertreated, and its origins, symptoms, and consequences are not well understood by the general public.
The following web pages from the University of Michigan Depression Center can provide employers with a better understanding about depression, bipolar disorder, and related illnesses, and they offer valuable information and educational resources that may be useful to employers and employees alike:
- Our Depression Toolkit website offers resources for those newly diagnosed with depressive illness, those who may be wondering whether they are experiencing depression, and those who just want to learn more about depression and related illnesses, including friends, family members and caregivers.
- The Depression Center produces various brochures, factsheets, newsletters, and other materials that are available to download.
- The Depression Center has produced many videos and video recordings of its educational events on understanding depression, dealing with stigma, and strategies for depression self-management.
