How to deal with negative mental health effects of your job

SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) – Four in 10 Americans in the workforce say their work has had a negative effect on their mental health, according to a national study by Gallup.

Seven percent reported “extremely” negative effects on their mental health, with 33 percent saying their work had a “somewhat” negative effect. Young workers aged 18 to 29 were most likely to experience poor mental health as a result of their work, with almost half affected.

Dr. Abigail Johnson with Johnson Behavioral Group sat down with KSLA on Thursday, November 10th to discuss this issue. Some of the topics she covered include:

  • How anxiety is present at work and what it looks like
  • The long-term impact of negative feelings
  • Solutions people can use to improve their work mental health
