An office in Saitama Prefecture, Japan had been provided with a mental health support program. An initial questionnaire survey was conducted in December 1999. 216 people responded; most had stressful schedules & demanding jobs. Their subjective well-being was generally poorer relative to the reference. The mean score of knowledge about depression & suicide was 10.5 for 14 items. One-fourth of respondents had unfavourable attitudes towards colleagues with depression. Neither age nor gender was related to knowledge level & attitude. (17 refs.)
