Pine Rest is excited to announce a new magazine called Insights. The first issue focuses on anxiety disorders and is entitled, “Anxiety.” The magazine is online as a PDF as well as html pages at: www.pinerest.org/anxiety.
Having an anxiety disorder can make a major impact in the workplace. People may turn down a promotion or other opportunity because it involves travel or public speaking; make excuses to get out of office parties, staff lunches, and other events or meetings with coworkers; or be unable to meet deadlines.
In a national survey on anxiety in the workplace, people with anxiety disorders commonly cited these as difficult situations: dealing with problems; setting and meeting deadlines; maintaining personal relationships; managing staff; participating in meetings, and making presentations.
EAPs are intended to help employees deal with the personal problems that might adversely impact their health, and well-being.
You can access EAP services 24-hours, 7 day-a-week the hotline number is (800) 422-0809 or (616) 455-6210.
