We are the solution.

Drug Overdose

"Annually, the number of drug overdose deaths involving fentanyl was stable in 2011 (1,663) and 2012 (1,615), and began to increase in 2013 (1,919), rising to 18,335 deaths in 2016 (Table 1). From 2013 through 2016, the number of deaths approximately doubled each year. From 2011 through the third quarter of 2013, there were fewer than 500 fentanyl-involved deaths per quarter (Figure 1, Table 1). Beginning in the last quarter of 2013 through 2016, the number of deaths involving fentanyl increased nearly every quarter to more than 5,800 deaths." https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr68/nvsr68_03-508.pdf

Dementia, Alzheimer's etc.

"In 2017, 261,914 deaths were attributed to dementia as an underlying cause. Unspecified dementia (F03) was the underlying cause in 101,934 deaths, and Alzheimer disease (G30) was the underlying cause of death in 121,404 deaths. For the other dementia causes, 16,247 deaths were attributed to vascular dementia (F01) and 22,329 deaths were attributed to other degenerative diseases of nervous system, not elsewhere classified (G31) (Figure 1)." https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr68/nvsr68_02-508.pdf

Workplace Engagement

85% of employees are not engaged or actively disengaged at work. The economic consequences of this global "norm" are approximately $7 trillion in lost productivity. Eighteen percent are actively disengaged in their work and workplace, while 67% are "not engaged." This latter group makes up the majority of the workforce -- they are not your worst performers, but they are indifferent to your organization. They give you their time, but not their best effort nor their best ideas. They likely come to work wanting to make a difference --- but nobody has ever asked them to use their strengths to make the organization better. https://www.gallup.com/workplace/238079/state-global-workplace-2017.aspx
