A recent newsfeed from Every Day Health Matters, Why Workplace Suicide is on the Rise, succinctly highlights some statistics relevant to people who risk suffering serious mental health deterioration from work pressures. Dr. Tiesman is a US based authority on the health of people at work, who thinks that some of us are literally dying from our jobs (suicide) because of the increasingly blurred lines between personal and work life.
At Guidelight Psychology we agree with Dr. Tiesman.
Our experience with a diverse range of clients who attend our Psychology practice for individual assistance, is that an overloaded work-life balance, coupled with increasingly unstable long term economic job security within many industries, can generate extreme mental health deterioration quite rapidly.
Seeking to engage a professional consultation sooner, rather than later, is frequently a very wise (and life revitalizing) move. It is a sign of wisdom and inner strength (not weakness), to seek out appropriate psychological tools and strategies, if you workplace mental health is under siege.
