Mental illness can be treated and prevented. If you suspect a mental illness, visit your nearest clinic or doctor. An estimated 400 million people worldwide suffer from mental or neurological disorders or from psychosocial problems.

Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse and job stress are very commen in South Africa and all over the world.

Mental illness does not only affect individuals but it also affects their families and co-workers. In addition, they have a direct impact on workplaces through increased absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased costs.

Very few South Africans seek treatment for their mental disorders. Mental illness can be treated at your nearest clinic or hospital.

Mental health problems are the result of a complex interplay between biological, psychological, social and environmental factors. There is increasing evidence that both the content and context of work can play a role in the development of mental health problems in the workplace.

Here are some key factors:

  • workload (both excessive and insufficient work)
  • lack of participation and control in the workplace
  • monotonous or unpleasant tasks
  • role ambiguity or conflict
  • lack of recognition at work
  • inequity
  • poor interpersonal relationships
  • poor working conditions
  • poor leadership and communication
  • conflicting home and work demands

The workplace can contribute positively to a person’s mental health, but it may also contribute to the development of a mental health problem in the workplace.

Seek personal advice from your doctor or clinic if you suspect mental health problems.
