World Health Organisation has recognised burnout as an occupational phenomenon and not as a mental health condition.
“Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.
It is characterized by three dimensions:
1. Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
2. Increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and reduced professional efficacy.
3. Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”
