Visions Journal

How’s Work? Life in the Workplace

PDF | EPUB | Vol. 17, No. 3 (2022)

Work can be a source of purpose, meaning, community, or a reason to get up and out the door in the morning. But life at work can be complicated and workers often navigate stressful work environments, unrealistic expectations, bullying, harassment, and discrimination, among other challenges. When these challenges occur, work can worsen mental health and substance use problems or contribute to the start of an illness. This issue of Visions highlights different paths and approaches to finding balance and creating wellness through the ups and down of work. You’ll learn from a paramedic navigating trauma through a pandemic, a teacher supporting a community through online learning, a freelancer tackling the gig economy, a community outreach worker and advisor who learned the importance of rest and recovery, a newcomer who learned to share their struggles with colleagues, and more.
