Stress Management & Burn-out Prevention in work environments
Statistics from the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) show that stress is the cause of as much as 40% of all work-related sickness. Burn-out is included in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as an occupational phenomenon. It is not classified as a medical condition or an illness itself, but prolonged periods of stress can cause a wide range of illnesses, both mental and physiological. These include depression, anxiety, heart disease, insomnia & eczema.*
