Avoiding burnout at work
Burnout can occur when individuals are pushed to their limit, with unmanageable workloads, emotional strain or lack of support from employers and colleagues being common causes. Symptoms can include fatigue, disengagement and depression, and if not managed properly the condition can lead to serious health problems. Good communication is the key – to ensure that colleagues feel that they will be listened to if they raise concerns regarding their mental health.
