Exhaustion is classified as a DISEASE by the World Health Organization - the 8 signs that it is at risk
For the first time, the World Health Organization has officially added "burn" to its International Classification of Diseases (ICD).

It will be recognized worldwide as a disease from 2022 and will allow health care providers and insurers to accept, treat and cover symptoms.

The WHO defines it as a result of "chronic stress in the workplace that has not been managed successfully".

He said that the syndrome was characterized by feelings of exhaustion, negativity or cynicism towards work and less professional efficiency.

Classification states that burn references specifically in the Occupational context and "should not be applied to descriptions of experiences in other areas of life".

WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic told reporters: "This is the first time that [exhaustion has been officially recognized in the ICD]."

The decision was made during the World Health Assembly in Geneva on Monday, when other conditions, including addiction to video games, were also recognized as a mental health disorder.

It comes a year after global health experts recommend.

Officials now hope to put the rest of the decades in debate among experts on how to define burnout and if it should be considered a medical condition.

  9. Phil Parker, a British osteopath, a stress expert said it is important to recognize the signs of exhaustion so you can try to control it.

He warned that it can also lead to physical and emotional exhaustion.

He said: "Companies can still do a lot to avoid exhaustion, it's too late to nip it in the bud.
