Lisa: I commend you for another excellent article highlighting the important issue of mental health awareness in the workplace and every place. I agree with your astute recommendations for employers, which simply make good business sense to increase workforce productivity, wellness and a more healthy work culture.

I also admire your courage, as always, for speaking out publicly on such a challenging topic which few people really understand — unless they have a mental illness or know someone who does. The stigma is still too real for too many people with mental illnesses. It’s way past time to #EndTheStigma once and for all.
