Job loss can lead to anxiety, depression
Mental health company YourDost organized a three-day campaign to counsel and support professionals who lost their jobs in the recent layoffs by the top IT companies in India.
The company shared that it received over 1000 enquiries, a majority of them reporting that they suffer from depression and anxiety.
The sudden loss of a job can cause emotional problems like anger, sadness, low self-confidence, which takes time to overcome.
A recent study said that losing a job these days can cause more emotional harm than being widowed or getting divorced.
One is likely to recover from the emotional shock only if he finds another job with a higher pay or position.
