According to the National Institute of Mental Health, in 2020, young adults aged 18 to 24 had the highest prevalence of mental health issues. Though mental health issues are common among Gen Z, individuals born between 1995 and 2010.
They are growing up in an age of increased stress and anxiety. And being called the most depressed generation and are more likely to seek mental health counselling or therapy than their older counterparts.
One in four adults will struggle with a mental health issue during their lifetime. At work, those suffering — from clinical conditions or more minor ones — often hide it for fear that they may face discrimination from rivals or even bosses.
Managers are likely to see employees struggle with anxiety, depression, burnout, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Most would regard post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a medical system that occurred within the battlefield, PTSD was considered primarily, if not exclusively a condition related to soldiers and the traumas related to their war experiences.
It was therefore surprising that Radhika Sanghani found herself suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder following a horrific coach crash in Thailand. She thought that PTSD was something soldiers in Afghanistan got – not 22-year-old Londoners who watched the Great British Bake Off.
