Is there a need for intervention?

My name is Archana Muthappa. I have been in the PR & Communications industry for over 2 decades and have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. The increasing discourse around the mental health of PR practitioners has led me to believe that this area might require some intervention.  This survey aims to form the basis of a hypothesis regarding mental health of professionals in In-house Communications and consulting PR in India.
The questions below will help support or dismiss the hypothesis that PR is among the most stressful professions, where it is assumed that at least a quarter of these professionals suffer from some mental health issue, which largely goes undiagnosed and untreated.
This survey aims to assess:
-        The existence (or not) of mental health-related issues among PR professionals
-        The types that are most prevalent
-        The potential ways in which interventions might be possible
The survey is strictly confidential. While extrapolated results will be determined and shared, details and specifics will not be shared with your employer.  You will need approximately 10 minutes to complete this questionnaire. Your participation will be invaluable to the PR/ Communications fraternity
