Executives, professionals, and business leaders may display competence and success in their respective workplace, but the huge amount of pressures on them could pose alarming health challenges. There is a level of respect and confidence that executives and professionals feel are earned by giving all of yourself to your career — and burning the candle at both ends. While that “first one in, last one out” mentality may help you quickly climb the corporate ladder, it often leads to lack of self-care, resulting in mental health problems, substance use disorders, and other self-destructive behaviors.
If that sounds like you, please know that you are not alone. In fact, the NIH reports that 72% of entrepreneurs are impacted by mental illness, either directly or indirectly, as compared to 32% among a control group. Here at Roots, we understand that there is fear and uncertainty in bringing these concerns to your employer or colleagues. We provide a safe, confidential and comfortable environment for you to work on your mental and physical well-being, among peers and staff who understand your unique situation.
Roots through Recovery’s Clinical Director, Diana Kang, PsyD. says, “Trauma does not discriminate and can impact anyone. Everyone has a different perception of trauma, and how it is experienced in the body and mind varies greatly from person to person.” The difficult thing about trauma is that it is based on a person’s experience and no two people experience events the same way. This is why two people can survive a car crash, grow up in an abusive home together, or serve a tour of combat duty, and have varying degrees of trauma, or even PTSD.
People coping with the effects of a traumatic event, and may be suffering from PTSD, experience various symptoms including:
Arousal and reactivity
Cognition and mood
