Address the Issues, and How to deal with stress

How to deal with stress in the workplace starts with a healthy environment and ensuring that mental health and stress are discussed openly. In fact, workers should be made aware that support is available to them, and that they can come and discuss any stress or mental health problems. This is to build a supportive work environment which is guaranteed to protect workers against stress and burnout.

Teach managers about stress and mental health

Ricki Grenfell, owner of RG Scaffolding has made it clear that good management should care more about the mental health of their workers. Managers need to learn how to spot stress, burnout, and unhappiness in their employees. Early warning signs could include the following: Showing up late to work, isolation from a group, forgetfulness, lack of concentration, and irritation or in a negative mood.  

Stress taking a dark turn

If stress is not maintained, it can easily spiral into depression – especially for workers who are prone to this common mental health condition. In fact, suffering from depression is twice as often in Men than women, and suicide is the leading cause of death in Men aged under 50. This suggests that a majority of male employees are struggling to cope and are suffering in silence due to the social pressures and stigma surrounding the discussion of mental health problems among men.
