Workplace stress, burnout, and distractions are a growing concern in the workplace. In fact, 70% of workers say they experience mental health challenges from their work or career. This is why it’s so important to have a strong support system in place – especially if you’re finding yourself struggling with depression or anxiety.

The National Health Service, UK, published a study in 2018 that found more than half of all mental health conditions start before a person turns 14. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult for you to recognize your own symptoms. This is why it’s necessary to know the signs of depression and anxiety in your workplace and how to help support yourself or someone else if you observe them.

ISO 45003 will be the first global standard that helps organizations identify and control work-related hazards and manage psychological risks.
