#MeToo - How Does Sexual Harassment In Companies Affect Mental Health?

#MeToo - How Does Sexual Harassment In Companies Affect Mental Health?

#MeToo movement has caught most of the attention because of Bollywood celebrities who have spoken about the sexual harassment they have faced in the past. However, the #MeToo movement has made a big impact on corporate culture as well. People are coming out and sharing stories about how they have faced or witnessed sexual harassment at the workplace, mostly at the hands of their bosses.

Most of them chose to keep quiet at that time, due to the usual fear of society and the risk of losing their job. But this movement has given courage to them, and now more and more people are coming out and sharing their own #MeToo stories.

Impact of #MeToo on Corporate

As a result, corporates are rushing to rein in the situation. They are working on first of all sensitizing the employees about what Sexual Harassment is, and what it isn’t. Also, they are trying to set up proper mechanisms in their organizations to deal with this. Even though there is a law around it, Prevention of Sexual Harassment in workplaces (POSH); most of the times it is poorly implemented. Anticipating more scrutiny from authorities around this, and also to boost employees' confidence, finally, companies are working overtime to address this issue.

Impact of #MeToo on Mental Health of Employees

A dark side of #MeToo is the impact that it has on the mental health of employees who have to face this. If they choose to stay quiet and don’t report it to anyone, then this leaves a permanent fear in their mind. Instead of reporting, they try to avoid the perpetrator of sexual assault. Sometimes it also leads to low self-confidence, as the victim might tend to think that they are responsible for what is happening to them. In some severe cases, sexual harassment at the workplace has led to employees suffering from mental disorders like depression, anxiety, stress, bipolar disorder, etc. Some of them have even gone to the extent of harming themselves or even committing suicide.

So, corporates are working overtime to specifically address the following:

  • Educating employees that what constitutes workplace harassment. For example, a boss might make a lewd comment on the dress of an employee, without realizing if it is right or wrong. So, training employees are the first step towards it.

  • Secondly, they are trying to set up cells within the organization, which are sufficiently empowered to deal with these issues. Such cells also give confidence to employees to open up if they face sexual assault.

  • Finally, instead of trying to hide such incidents, corporates are now proactively taking action against the perpetrators. In some cases, this has even led to the firing of CEOs.

#MeToo has spread a lot of sad stories around. However, there is a positive side to it, at least in workplaces. Corporates are now becoming more vigilant about workplace sexual harassment, and this should hopefully lead to much lesser such incidents in the future.

Risperidone is the right medication if it was psychosis. It controls symptoms of psychosis and helps with sleep etc. If you think you have improved and feeling benefits continue with it but it has to be monitored by the psychiatrist regularly for any side effects. So it is good for you if the original diagnosis was right and the side effects always has to be balanced with benefits of taking it.

Hi lybrate-user! Yes you are not supposed to take Alprazolam regularly unless otherwise prescribed by a Psychiatrist for a period of time. Once the course is completed as per Psychiatrist advice you can stop the same. If you are addicted, then yes there are side effects if taken more than the prescribed dose and definitely you will be incapable of facing any situation in life. Do undergo treatment for ths same to overcome the same without being addicted to this medicine. Take Care. With regards.

Here are things you can do at home to help your child manage his or her anxiety disorder: Pay attention to your child’s feelings. Stay calm when your child becomes anxious about a situation or event. Recognize and praise small accomplishments. Don’t punish mistakes or lack of progress. Be flexible, but try to maintain a normal routine. Modify expectations during stressful periods. Plan for transitions (For example, allow extra time in the morning if getting to school is difficult). Keep in mind that your child’s anxiety disorder diagnosis is not a sign of poor parenting. It may add stress to family life, however. It is helpful to build a support network of relatives and friends. It's important that you have the same expectations of your anxious child that you would of another child, according to psychologist Lynn Siqueland, PhD. She has specialized in treating children and adolescents with anxiety disorders for more than 15 years. She offers these parenting tips for anxious kids, as well as ways to manage siblings, whose lives are also affected.

Lybrate-user, You shouldn’t take medications without adequate assessment and advise of psychiatrist. If you continue to feel depressed despite the antidepressant then dosage may be increased or the medication can be reviewed and changed. Alprazolam is a short acting benzodiazepine and has been used to treat anxiety though preferably not long term. So I advise review and assessment by the psychiatrist of symptoms and medications.

I need to stop my smoking what I do. And am eats more food but am not get weight what I do.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for stopping smoking. It you stop smoking, you feel more hungry. You may put on weight in due course. Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, use of alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will be like a passing cloud.

Have a positive attitude and go back to your doctor as it requires some patience and some lifestyle changes. Maintain good sleep hygiene (learn about it from the internet ). Learn some relaxation techniques (or learn yoga ). Consider adapting a daily physical activity (exercising everyday can be a very good sleep inducer ). You can talk to your doctor and plan holistic approach in your daily routine. You may require extension of medicines for some more days just to taper it off smoothly. You can revert afterwards with your experience or any more quarries.

Dear Sir Please do not stop the medicine on your own even though you are feeling well. Abruptly stoping the medicine can cause a relapse of depression. Consult your psychiatrist regarding tapering of your medicine try to squeeze in some form of physical exercise at least 3 times a week. It will not only help your weight but also help your mood. Taje care of your diet. Thanks Regards.

Hi lybrate-user, Its good to reach out and seek help. First things first. There are many thought inside our head that influence our moods and behavior. I would suggest incorporate a practice of writing your thoughts everyday. Write about your day, the events in the day, people involved converations, your feelings about those conversations each day. Emotions can be very powerful. It is important to chanellise them in a right manner. When your emotions are written on paper you can evaluate them and respond on them well. 2. Invest and indulge in self care activities, like go for a walk, have a nutritious diet each day. 3. Invest in some hobby. 4. Take proper sleep. 5. Talk to a trusted friend ot adult about how you feel. 6. Visit a counselor in your college/neighbourhood for further assessment. Or you can get in touch with me through online consultation to discuss and understand further reasons for your mood and how can you enhance and overcome this mood state.
