BioMedNewsBreaks – VistaGen Therapeutics (NASDAQ: VTGN) CEO Addresses ‘Multi-Pronged Approach’ to Growing Problem of Workplace Stress and Anxiety

September 30, 2020 08:40:16

VistaGen Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ: VTGN) CEO Shawn Singh authored a recent article for regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting stress and anxiety impacts to the workplace. In the piece, Singh indicates that stress and anxiety, often driven by job-related issues, when left unchecked can rise to the level of an anxiety disorder with negative consequences for physical health, mental well-being, productivity and career opportunities. The global pandemic has exacerbated this largely unaddressed and widespread mental health problem in the workplace, markedly reflecting in increased prescriptions for antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications, many associated with significant side effects and safety concerns. “To adequately address the growing problem of workplace stress and anxiety both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic – and the physical and mental health consequences associated with it – a multi-pronged approach is needed,” states Singh in the article. “This approach should include the provision of additional mental/emotional health support from employers in the form of employee assistance programs (‘EAPs’), as well as novel approaches to psychotherapy and fundamentally different medications by mental health professionals.”
