Matthew Kyte's curator insight, March 16, 9:52 PM
It becomes quite problematic when you experience workplace bullying and harassment, especially when it is from your leader.  A psychologist can assist in listening and supporting employees who feel helpless and provide strategies to mentally cope with the situation.  This is where a whistleblower hotline is important to provide an avenue to raise the issue anonymously.  In these tough economic times, often it is simply not as easy to quit a job when there are many life demands to keep an income flowing.

PTSD and diabetes link found | BPS

DutyOfCareNorfolk's insight:

Having just been diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2, and experienced post traumatic stress symptoms following workplace mobbing, this comes as no surprise - 
Chartered Psychologist Dr Jennifer Wild said: "The findings show a new link between PTSD and physical health, consistent with established research, which has linked chronic PTSD to changes in the body’s stress response system.
