Workaholism& Psychiatric Disorders

Workaholism& Psychiatric Disorders

Workaholics have a compulsion to work. They work excessively even it interferes with their sleep, health and relationship with family and friends. On the surface, they may seem to like and enjoy their work, but deep down they simply feel compelled to overwork.

A large research study in Norway indicates that workaholics are more likely to suffer from psychiatric disorders such as Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The study was conducted by scientists at the University of Bergen in Norway where they studied the link between excessive work and mental health disorders in over 16,000 working adults.
