Understanding and Coping with Depression for All Faculty and Staff

October is National Depression Education and Awareness Month. While the pandemic has taken, and continues to take, its toll on our mental health, Johns Hopkins continues to promote and encourage efforts to prioritize and protect your mental well-being.

Join the Johns Hopkins Employee Assistance Program (JHEAP) at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 26, for this webinar to raise awareness about depression and well-being.

Depression occurs in persons of all genders, ages, and backgrounds. It's among the leading causes of disability worldwide and affects over 120 million people. This seminar will discuss the causes, symptoms, and impact of depression, as well as ways to both seek and receive help.

Though depression can be reliably diagnosed, few of those affected actually receive the proper treatment. You will learn the barriers to treatment as well as ways to overcome them for a happier, healthier life. Learn about the risk factors, signs, and symptoms, as well as effective treatment options for you or your colleagues, families, and friends.

Register here.

If you or someone you know has been affected by depression, you are not alone. Free, confidential counseling support—for you and your loved ones—is available 24/7/365 by calling the Johns Hopkins Employee Assistance Program (JHEAP) at 888-978-1262.
