To mark Children’s Mental Health Week this February and its theme of Let’s Connect, our voters discussed the triggers, signs and effects of burnout. They discussed how experiencing burnout can negatively impact our mental health and the importance of recognising the signs in ourselves and others. Finally, they debated whether society’s response to burnout is improving.
"We don't get enough rest because school starts so early. At school the teachers are under pressure to get all the work done and so we have to work hard for a lot of the time to complete everything.”
“We are getting better at recognising burnout but not doing enough to support people experiencing it.”
“Recognising burnout can be easier when you have experienced it yourself. You can recognise the signs you experienced and support others when you see them exhibiting those signs. The support for burnout is better and it is more accepted now."
