Monica Fairview Presents - Steampunk Darcy!

Image
Good morning, dear readers!
I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am to have another of my fellow Austen Author  joining me for Coffee - the brilliant and amazing Monica Fairview!  Ever since I heard she was working on a steampunk adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, I have been chomping at the bit waiting for her to finish it! (On my own "to do" list is a steampunk/shapeshifter version of Wuthering Heights, but it will be a complete parody - I mean, don't you think Heathcliff deserves to be parodized?) Now Steampunk Darcy is finally here! With such an imaginative variation, I know it will jump (or float by airship) to the top of your TBR list! PLUS she is ready to tackle any of your questions. So set your clocks back, tighten your corsets, put on your goggles, and get ready for a ride.....

Why You Can't AFFORD to Ignore Depression

Gentle Readers,
For most people who have never had personal exposure to mental illness, they may think, "What does this have to do with me?"

I think it is fitting that when we have an economic downturn, they call it a "Depression" because depression has an enormous impact on our economy.

Depression Costs US Workplaces $23 Billion in Absenteeism.
Depression is the most prevalent mental illness, affecting nearly 19 million Americans between the ages of 25 and 44 - essentially, the most productive years in the workforce. 12% of workers in the United States have been diagnosed with depression at some point in their lives. In the workplace, they miss an estimated 68 million additional days, more than ulcers, diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis.

The total economic burden of depression is $83 billion a year.
That exceeds the costs of the war in Afghanistan! Of this total, $26.1 billion (31%) were direct treatment costs, $5.4 billion (7%) were suicide-related cost…
