Why workplace stress and anxiety is a major issue for Melbourne workers

A study by the University of Melbourne and VicHealth found that ‘preventable job stress’ cost Australia’s economy $730 million a year.

While the study focused on stress, heightened levels of ongoing stress can lead to internal feelings of dread. However, if those feelings of dread don’t subside after the stressful event has occurred, experts categorise this as anxiety.

Anxiety treatment for Melbourne City workers can have a positive, lasting impact on their lives. So don’t feel stressed, defeated and alone in your workplace. Seek professional help to turn your life around.

People’s anxiety can skyrocket at work for a range of reasons. They might feel overworked, given no direction, or pressured by deadlines, managing staff and dealing with conflicts.

Every year over one million Australians will experience anxiety, substance related-disorders or depression. A report commissioned by Beyond Blue found that one in five Australians took time off work over the course of a year because of anxiety, depression and problems with mental health. TNS Social Research carried out the 2014 State of Workplace Mental Health of Australia report.

Beyond Blue stated that 91 per cent of employees in the study believed mental health in the workplace was important. However, just over 50 per cent classed their workplace as mentally healthy.

With these figures in mind, our counsellors urge people feeling anxious in their workplace to take that first step. Make the call to our caring team. And start your journey to a life with less anxiety.
