10/12/2007 - Submitted by: Wynne Richard
A new campaign, aimed at raising public awareness in the workplace about depression has been launched in Ireland.
"The workplace is a very important aspect of everyday life, since much of the day is spent there, so it is central for employers to have a healthy working environment for their staff," said Mary Maguire, secretary of the Occupational Health Nurses Associaton of Ireland. Her organisation, along with the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and pharmaceutical company Lundbeck are involved in the campaign which has published a Mind Yourself at Work information resource pack for employers and employees. It may be obtained free by calling 01-4689800.
