"Burn Out" Officially Recognized As A Disease by World Health Organization


The World Health Organization has officially recognized workplace burn-out as a chronic condition. It will become globally recognized in 2022, giving healthcare providers and insurers precedent to acknowledge, treat and cover symptoms, which are [according to the WHO]:

  1. feelings of exhaustion
  2. increased mental distance from one's job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job; and 
  3. reduced professional efficacy 

Do you know anyone who suffers from this *wait for it* disease?!
