Summary

This book has been put together by experts in the field of mental health, and associated fields, whom have been carefully chosen to share their insights on a specific knowledge area with you. A golden thread that runs through all these chapters is that each and every contributor is passionate about what they do, and in so doing passionate in sharing their knowledge and experience with you in their unique way. There is much to be done in the field of mental health as yet.

Improving Mental Health in the Workplace consists of 3 parts:

Part 1: Mental health in the workplace: Understanding the current context and what has given rise to this increasing concern
Part 2: Mental health is not an island: Wellbeing is holistic and has multiple dimensions
Part 3: Coping mechanisms: Towards a way forward with mental health

We cannot ignore the fact the context of the pandemic has changed our lives as we once knew it to be. The book starts off with a positioning of the current context and why a spotlight has been placed on mental health. Part 1 focuses largely on how the workplace has responded to the mental health pandemic, what trends we are seeing now and what we can expect to see post pandemic, and some of the major contributors to mental health concerns in the workplace. Included are the common manifestations of mental illnesses which is only one component of the mental health topic as positioned in this book.

    LibriVox volunteers bring you 27 recordings of The Lovers by Emily Dickinson. This was the Weekly Poetry project for May 27, 2012.The verses of Emily Dickinson belong emphatically to what Emerson long since called "the Poetry of the Portfolio,"—something produced absolutely without the thought of publication, and solely by way of expression of the writer's own mind. Such verse must inevitably forfeit whatever advantage lies in the discipline of public criticism and the enforced conformity to accepted ways. On the other hand, it may often gain something through the habit of freedom and the unconventional utterance of daring thoughts. In the case of the present author, there was absolutely no choice in the matter; she must write thus, or not at all. A recluse by temperament and habit, literally spending years without setting her foot beyond the doorstep, and many more years during which her walks were strictly limited to her father's grounds, she habitually concealed her mind, like her person, from all but a very few friends; and it was with great difficulty that she was persuaded to print, during her lifetime, three or four poems. Yet she wrote verses in great abundance; and though brought curiously indifferent to all conventional rules, had yet a rigorous literary standard of her own, and often altered a word many times to suit an ear which had its own tenacious fastidiousness. (Summary from the Preface of Poems by Emily Dickinson )

    People today are inundated with advice, opinions, and information about how to invest. The more data you accumulate, the thinking goes, the better decisions you'll make. In The Either/Or Investor, global investment strategist Clark Winter shows that the opposite is the case, introducing a revelatory way of thinking about the markets based on finding and assessing just enough of the right information and using your common sense.According to Winter, investing comes down to making choices. All great investors employ an "either/or" filter for evaluating and simplifying the many investment opportunities available to them. The Either/Or Investor reveals how you can emulate this thought process while remaining realistic about your own goals and needs, and gives you the tools to choose among the options that modern investors face, such as:-Fear versus greed: In an anxious post-9/11 world, discover when it's smart to make an aggressive financial move.-Developed world versus developing world: Find out if you should stick with opportunities in the United States or risk those available in the emerging economies of China, Russia, India, Mexico, and Turkey.-Anti-immigration versus migration of talent: Learn to evaluate the products that immigrants introduce to the rest of the world in order to assess the value in investing in American companies that cater to new immigrant groups.-Too much information versus too little information: Use the Internet, newspapers, and TV to your advantage. (For example, get the pros and cons about China's growing economic power so you can become informed enough to act.)-Rising interest rates versus falling interest rates: Understand how changing interest rates are a good barometer for how to spend your money.Winter shows how anyone can learn to make sound decisions in a changing world by discerning trends early in an investment cycle, and then taking advantage of these trends or steering clear. Winter also explains how to choose a money manager and how to determine what the next investment opportunities might be.Armed with Winter's methods, any investor can improve his or her own investment prowess. The Either/Or Investor is a way-both judicious and daring-for choosing a better future.
