Stress 'has become more common during recession'

Stress has become more common during recession 2644

Compensation claims launched on the grounds of stress at work are likely to be more common now than they were prior to the onset of the global economic downturn.

That is if comments made by Dr Rick Norris, chartered psychologist and author of Think Yourself Happy, are anything to go by, as he believes mental anxiety has become more common throughout the financial slump.

Dr Norris explained stress is "undoubtedly" linked to the common issues that come about as by-products of a recession, such as redundancy.

"Those who have got jobs are worried about the amount of work they are being asked to do whilst other people are being laid off," he added.

The expert went on to note that even people who are not in any immediate danger of losing their job are also feeling the pressure because of the overall feeling of uncertainty affecting many companies and the wider employment sector.
