Yesterday was World Suicide Prevention Day. Those that know the full Work Warrior story understand my passion for healthy workplaces stems from having to leave a toxic work environment. However, I wasn’t the only one affected by an unhealthy organization. A friend of mine, who struggled with anxiety and depression decided to end his life because everything became “too much.” His job was a contributing factor to his decision.
So, as I share my story, please know my voice is the only one I can share…as my friend, and former co-worker, is no longer here to tell his. If you know someone who is in a toxic workplace please know they are very real. The situation is so much more than simply finding another job. Listen to my story here. Share it. Ask for help if you need it…but whatever you do, please know no workplace is worth your health, or your life.
