Posted October 02, 2018 07:00:15 A recent study by the National Center for Employee Health and Human Performance found that employees in a variety of industries experience high levels of stress and a wide range of anxiety, with more than 40 percent reporting experiencing a panic attack within the past month.
The study found that over half of respondents reported experiencing a severe episode of anxiety or panic attacks within the last two months.
The anxiety levels in employees in the management, sales, marketing, and finance industries are higher than in the manufacturing, construction, and mining industries.
According to the report, workers who have anxiety issues in their job, whether or not they are in a leadership position, have a higher likelihood of being at risk for panic attacks.
Many workers feel that they are not being taken seriously in their jobs and that they feel like they are being targeted by managers.
While anxiety disorders are not always associated with being at fault in a workplace environment, the stress associated with managing stress and managing anxiety can have negative consequences for people who are working in an industry.
For example, employees in high-stress industries are more likely to suffer depression and anxiety symptoms.
While the prevalence of stress related anxiety disorders is higher in higher-paying occupations, some of the stress related disorders that are most prevalent in low-paying positions can be experienced in the middle or lower rungs of the occupational ladder.
For instance, the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that among those with a college degree, the prevalence rate of anxiety disorders was higher than that of the general population.
Additionally, workers in higher paid positions are more than three times more likely than those in lower paid positions to experience stress related depression and other anxiety disorders.
According the National Foundation for Behavioral Health Research, a national organization of researchers, there are more anxiety disorders in women than in men and that women are at increased risk of developing a panic disorder, a disorder characterized by severe distress and anxiety when the mind becomes confused and anxious.
As with other anxiety and depression disorders, people with anxiety disorders often experience a range of symptoms that include difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty taking in information.
Some of the most common anxiety disorders that can occur in people with panic disorders include panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and social phobia.
Stress management training and a supportive environment for employees to deal with their anxiety are key strategies that can help prevent anxiety disorders from occurring.
However, the process of managing stress also takes time and effort and requires that employees be mindful of their emotions and how they affect their work.
The National Center on Employee Health & Human Performance is a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve the health and well-being of employees by advancing the understanding of employees and their workplaces.
The organization’s research is conducted at the intersection of psychology, health, economics, and policy to inform effective workplace health and safety strategies and practices.
