In 2015 I remember having a discussion with an attendee for a Chief Human Resources Officer event where I discovered that Corporate America pay roughly $300bn per year in stress related illness.  You get it right?  That feeling on a Sunday night when your anxious and nervous about having to spend another week of work in a job that you don’t enjoy.  And with stress, it can lead to depression, substance abuse and eventual suicide.

Modern day pressures include:

  • Graduates are entering the workplace with greater debt than ever before.  So financial independence and retirement planning comes second to simply recovering from such huge debt.
  • Residual fear from the global recession meaning generations that suffered previously are taking less risk.
  • Overspending on the latest gadgets and fashion as a sign of success leads to credit card debt.
  • Commuting for up to 2 hours, twice a day leaves little room for yourself or your family.
  • Work/Life balance becoming more and more difficult as technology has enabled us to have permanent connection to the office.

To defeat the condition we must first understand the condition.

Like A Leader has partnered with the Brain & Behavior Research foundation to increase our knowledge and understanding of depression so that we may see the signs and administer appropriate treatments to reduce such a mentally debilitating problem.

I congratulate you for taking the first step in being part of the Like A Leader networking dinners and thank you for taking the time to read this message.  Finally, if you choose to donate I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Kind regards
