In the challenging environments of work and school, we often find ourselves facing a range of pressures that can become overwhelming. The high expectations, intense experiences, and exposure to potentially traumatic events in these settings can lead to the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and burnout, significantly affecting our emotional well-being.

These conditions frequently arise due to the rigorous expectations and demands placed on individuals within these domains. Unfortunately, such experiences are not uncommon and can impact people from various backgrounds.

Work/school-related PTSD and burnout can have lasting effects, making it challenging to cope with the requirements of everyday life.

  • Persistent anxiety
