moneybagThe LA Times came out with this article on depression and the first sentences state:

The numbers are staggering: Almost 7% of the U.S. adult population — about 17.6 million people — is diagnosed with depression, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. The national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that depression costs 200 million lost workdays each year at a cost to employers of $17 billion to $44 billion.

Fu**k that.  Money is the second sentence of how depression affects the employers.

Ridiculous.
