Younger generations are more likely to quit their jobs due to mental health reasons, a new survey finds. Half of millennials (ages 23 to 38) and 75 percent of Gen Zers (ages 18 to 22) said they quit because of conditions such as anxiety and depression. It's a stark contrast from the 10 percent of baby boomers (ages (ages 55 to 73) who said they'd done the same, according to the survey from Mind Share Partners, SAP, and Qualtrics. The authors of the report say this is a sign of a 'generational shift in awareness' of when mental health is being damaged and needs to be prioritized. Employers, they added, need to become more comfortable providing their workers with mental health support services. A new survey found that millennials were three times more likely to experience anxiety, and Gen Zers were four times more likely, than baby boomers were (file image) The survey canvassed 1,500 people who were at least aged 16 and older and working at a … [Read more...] about 50% of millennials and 75% of Gen-Zers have quit their jobs because their mental health was suffering

Screaming sirens, overcrowding, traffic; life in the city isn’t always relaxing. These stressors aren’t simply inconvenient or irritating, though; research has suggested that urban living has a significant impact on mental health. One meta-analysis found that those living in cities were 21% more likely to experience an anxiety disorder – mood disorders were even higher, at 39%. People who grew up in a city are twice as likely to develop schizophrenia as those who grew up in the countryside, with a 2005 study suggesting this link may even be causal. Urban stressors appear to have a biological impact, too. A 2011 study from the Central Institute of Mental Health at the University of Heidelberg found that city living was associated with greater stress responses in both the amygdala and the cingulate cortex – areas linked to emotional regulation, depression and anxiety.

"Can you please concentrate a little better?" they keep saying into your headphones. Or, "You are among the worst performing individuals to have been studied in this laboratory." Helpful things like that. It is a relief when time runs out. Few people would enjoy this experience, and indeed the volunteers who underwent it were monitored to make sure they had a stressful time. Their minor suffering, however, provided data for what became a major study, and a global news story. The researchers, led by Dr Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg of the Central Institute of Mental Health in Mannheim, Germany, were trying to find out more about how the brains of different … [Read more...] about Sick cities: why urban living can be bad for your mental health
