    Presentation Description:  When someone in the workplace is having mental health problems, from depression to mental illness, concerned coworkers often ask HR to help. Do you know what to do if someone needs your help? Michael will discuss how to recognize mental health crises, what resources are available, and how you can “not make it worse” when talking to the person in crisis.
