Is it just stress… or something worse?
Anxiety, depression, substance abuse, suicide: there is a silent epidemic occurring in the workplace. Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Australians, and it doesn’t stay at home.
Stress is unavoidable in the modern workplace – even desirable as it motivates and stretches us to perform. But there is a point where healthy stress becomes chronic stress, and when chronic stress develops into mental illness.
Left untreated it will harm the individual, damage your team’s culture, and impact the performance of your business.
