Last March 7, 2009, Kyodo News reported that suicides in 2008 hit almost 32,000 keeping suicides above the 30,000 line for the 11th straight year, with depression topping the list of reasons. However, the National Police Agency already reported almost 2,700 suicides for January 2009 alone. Now something is wrong. Terribly wrong!

So what can we do as HR and business professionals? How can we identify employees in crisis? And if an employee suicide does happen during our watch, how do we manage it?

Join us in this very timely discussion around this topic and gain useful insights to help you and your organization prevent and manage employee depression and suicides. Leading us in this discussion is Dr. Linda Semlitz,MD, Clinical Director of TELL---a non-profit organization offering counseling assistance not only to Japan's English community but increasingly to the Japanese society as a whole.
