Get support from The Charity for Civil Servants

We can make time to re-energise and help prevent burnout by:

  • Being physically active. This has proven benefits for both physical and mental health.
  • Trying to get a good night’s sleep.
  • Being creative. Creative hobbies are known to help with reducing stress.
  • Staying connected to your family and friends and asking for support if you need to.
  • Practicing mindfulness.

Burnout doesn't always mean depression, but some symptoms are the same: extreme exhaustion, feeling down, and reduced performance. While depression specific symptoms include low self-esteem and hopelessness. Before self-diagnosing depression, speak to your GP.
