Emotional abuse
“Emotional abuse allows one person to gain power and control over another through words and gestures which gradually undermine the other’s self respect. Emotional abuse can be difficult to identify, as there is no scars or marks, and the torment can continue indefinitely. Conflict, arguments and criticism are all healthy ways of interacting with others – so what makes communication abusive?”

How Mental Health in the Workplace and Corporate Purpose Are Irrevocably Linked
“One in six workers experience depression, anxiety or unmanageable stress, a further one in six experience symptoms of mental ill health such as sleep problems and fatigue. Mental health is often still taboo in the workplace. This can mean employees keep quiet about their mental distress. As a result problems spiral and are often not identified until too late, exacerbating the business and human costs, as well as placing added strain on colleagues.”
