Anxiety and Depression at work 

Carmen López

Psychologin. Master in Human Resources.

Trying to be machines at work is killing us. We're not machines, that’s why the number of people suffering from anxiety and depression is increasing. Have you suffered from anxiety or depression and not said a word at work? As a boss, do you know that many of your people's performance problems have to do with anxiety and depression? 

 

In fact, high performers are the most affected. 

CEOs like Ted Turner, Tom Johnson, Martha Stewart (1) and

Athletes like tennis player Rafael Nadal, (2) or NBA star Kevin Love (3) have suffered from anxiety.

 

So, stop thinking that a person with anxiety or depression is weak. 

 

We have to act and treat each other as human beings.

 

What do you do in your company to keep your employees mentally fit and away from anxiety and depression?

 

Let's start this conversation.
