Work-Related Violence Increases Risk Of Depression

In a research conducted to study the link between work-related violence and depression, researchers found that people subjected to real or threatened violence at workplace run a major risk of becoming clinically depressed. // The study showed that the magnitude of the risk was in direct proportion to the amount of workplace violence experienced.

The findings of the study have been published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. The findings were based on the occupations of more than 14,000 patients aged between 18 and 65 being treated in the hospitals for depression or stress related disorders between 1995 and 1998.

These patients were then compared with 38, 000 people without mental ill health problems, but matched for age and sex. All participants were asked about their jobs and if they had been subjected to violence at work in the previous 12 months.

The prevalence of real and threatened violence was highest among those working in health, education, and social work sectors. Male employees were at greater risk of violence than women.

While most violence came from clients, patients, and pupils, around 5% of study participants with mental health problems said they were subjected to violent behavior from their work colleagues.

Almost half said they had been subjected to more than one incident of violence or threatening behavior in the preceding 12 months, and one in five said they had been subjected to both.

Exposure to violence boosted the risk of depression by 45% in women and 48% in men, compared with those in workplaces without any risk of violence.

Stress related disorders were around a third more likely in women and 55% more likely in men.

Threatening behavior boosted the likelihood of depression by 48% in women and stress related disorders by almost 60% in men.

The magnitude of risk was directly proportional to the amount of vio
