What's Your Mental Health IQTake Guardian's Online Quiz and Help Raise $10,000 for Mental Health America.

May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month and Mental Health Month.

The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian) and Mental Health America (MHA) are sponsoring an online quiz to dispel myths about mental illness and disability and to raise awareness about depression as a common cause of disability.

For every quiz completed, Guardian has pledged to donate $1 to support MHA's work to improve mental health and wellness, up to $10,000.

Untreated and mistreated mental illness costs the nation $150 billion in lost productivity each year, with U.S. businesses footing up to $44 billion of this bill.

Workplace absences, lost productivity and long-term disability claims due to depression and other psychiatric disorders can be profound. MHA estimates that, in a typical office of 20 people, four will experience a mental health challenge in any given year.

Guardian is an industry leader in group and individual disability insurance, which is designed to protect your income if illness or injury makes you unable to work.

WHEN: Now through May 31, 2010.

WHERE: www.guardianlife.com and www.mentalhealthamerica.net

The quiz site includes links to MHA's online Stress and Depression Screeners, as well as links to disability calculators and other important consumer information.
