The Importance of a Healthy Mind in Business
Dr Leigh A Neal, Consultant Psychiatrist and Medical Director at Smart TMS in London, gives advice for managers and business owners on identifying stressed or depressed staff.
The advice featured in the May edition of Global Health & Pharma Magazine (GHP) in a feature entitled The Importance of a Healthy Mind in Business.
Dr Neal explains:
“For managers and business owners, identifying stressed or depressed employees at an early stage can be crucial to keeping the company on-track.
“Sadly though, diagnosing mental illness isn’t always easy, but there are a few tell tale signs.
“If your colleagues are quick to become irritated or angered, frequently complaining about lack of energy, struggling to concentrate and remember details or finding it hard to make decisions, then they could be suffering from depression. Employees taking an increasing number of sick days, failing to complete their usual duties or behaving strangely in the workplace could also be at risk.
“Most importantly, don’t be afraid to talk to your colleagues about mental health and managing stress. Many people will struggle to identify the onset of depression as it occurs, and most of us will put up with extremely high levels of stress before we do anything about it, hence the reason that stress is often referred to as “the silent killer”. Keeping mental health firmly on the agenda can help workplaces to thrive on both a personal and professional level.”
It is important to identify and treat persistent and severe cases of stress and/or depression.
The first line of treatment is traditionally either medication or psychotherapy; or a combination of those.
However, a less well-known alternative is Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, a treatment which is offered by Dr Leigh Neal in London.
TMS is clinically proven and has been approved by NICE for treating depression. This treatment uses magnetic pulses to stimulate the specific areas of the brain associated with stress and/or depression. It is a non-medication route which has shown remarkable results even in severe cases. See testimonials.
