Signs of work stress
Stress is a normal response to the demands of work. It can be beneficial in short bursts, helping you stay alert and perform at your best.
However, prolonged or excessive job stress can be damaging to your mental health. Stress can contribute to the development of anxiety and/or depression, and may cause an existing condition to worsen.
As well as affecting your relationships and life outside work, stress can increase your risk of injury, fatigue and burnout.
