Stress & Burnout
Stress and burnout are two interconnected phenomena that can have a significant impact on an individual's well-being, productivity, and overall quality of life.
Types of Stress:
Episodic Acute Stress
Types of Burnout:
Traumatic events—such as an accident, assault, military combat or natural disaster—can have lasting effects on a person’s mental health. While many people will have short term responses to life-threatening events, some will develop longer term symptoms that can lead to a diagnosis of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD symptoms often co-exist with other conditions such as substance use disorders, depression and anxiety.
