Work anxiety: Help is there you just need to know where to look

May 25 2020 by NZ Herald

New Zealanders struggling with back to work anxiety related to Covid-19 are being urged to seek help early.

There has been a spike in demand for mental health services from people affected by increased workloads, work from home isolation, and those hit by job loss or business closure.

As the impact of Covid-19 deepens wellbeing experts are calling on employers to be clear about what support is available - and for employees to use it.

Many large corporations have Employment Assistance Programs (EAPs) to provide independent support and counselling to staff.
