S5 Ep7 Rust Out, Careers and Mental Health ft Fiona Thomas

We often hear about burn out, the concept of being so relentlessly busy that your mental health is affected. However in this episode we chat to mental health writer Fiona Thomas to learn what can happen when we find ourselves in the opposite situation at work; whether that’s because we are under stimulated, stuck in an uninspiring role or unable to progress our career.

This can lead to a concept known as Rust Out and there’s evidence to suggest that it can be just as detrimental. We dive in to explore what Rust out means and more importantly, what we can do about it, as well as discussing other aspects of how mental health and career choices can collide.
