I actually found this article in the Executive Health section of BusinessWeek. I”m glad publications like BusinessWeek is choosing to cover issues about mental health.
Among employees, 76 percent believed their work status would be damaged by seeking treatment for drug addiction, 73 percent for alcoholism, and 62 percent for depression, compared with 55 percent who thought seeking care for diabetes would affect their work status and 54 percent for heart disease.
