Understanding and Recognizing Depression for Managers

October is National Depression Education and Awareness Month. Johns Hopkins continues to promote and encourage efforts to prioritize and protect the mental well-being of its faculty and staff.

Offered through the Johns Hopkins Employee Assistance Program (JHEAP), this online training, scheduled for noon on Thursday, Oct. 26, will improve managers' ability to recognize symptoms of depression and guide them on referring employees to internal and community resources for managing depression. Participants also will learn how to approach employees who might be struggling and encourage them to seek professional assistance for symptoms.
