Understanding the probable causes behind mental health distress in the workplace presents an opportunity to learn how to avoid them and protect yourself. It would help to adopt work-life balance techniques to help you through any mental health challenges.
More often than not, I see my friends and peers (especially my fellow SCAD writing grads) in the same boat: having to take on a job because, right now, it’s the only way to eat and pay the bills. Too often at the expense of mental health and well-being. The job hunt never really ends and a career as we might have imagined it rarely seems to exist.
