Dr Barbara Mariposa explained the signs and symptoms of burnout and taught strategies to prevent it.
The word “burnout”, a bit like the word ‘depression’, it can be used in day to day conversations in a casual way that risks downplaying its seriousness. It’s important to realise that, in 2019, burnout was recognised by the World Health Organisation as a significant and costly work-related illness, costly at a business level but more importantly costly at a personal level, especially as recovery can take time. In times of global and personal crisis the risk of burnout is greater, making it increasingly important that we look out for the work-related risks of this serious condition and prevent it occurring.
