Work-related ill health can happen to anyone. This book is all about how to survive and thrive when it happens to you.

We all have a moan about going to work: groaning about getting on the bus in the rush hour, counting down to the weekend. A gripe here and there is understandable and expected, but what happens when the effects of work are far more detrimental to your wellbeing than a simple case of Sunday-night blues?

When you are in this situation, it can be very difficult to know where to turn, who to speak to or where to find good quality help and advice. In Is Your Job Making You Ill?, Dr Ellie Cannon uses her decade of experience treating patients to create an essential resource for anybody suffering from job-related ill-health.

Part one of the book lays out the key causes of job-related illness - from the pressure of an unmanageable workload to the challenges of an emotionally-draining job - and identifies the most common illnesses and symptoms which can occur as a result, including stress, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure and IBS.

Part two will help you to find a way out. It includes a practical, self-directed programme that can be tailored to your individual circumstances, covering everything from where to find help, when (and if) to seek professional advice or take time off work, to micro-actions like improving your commute and adjusting your diet to support a healthy lifestyle.

Industry Reviews
Is Your Job Making You Ill? contains good sound advice from Dr Ellie Cannon. It is well worth reading for anyone who is struggling at work and needs a framework for thinking differently about it -- Karen Mattison MBE, joint CEO Timewise
Dr Ellie Cannon has produced an incredibly helpful guide to dealing with ill health at work. It's not just for those who are unwell but for the people around them too. I have spoken to many staff in HR about stress and mental health related issues at work and I believe this book is a must read for them as well. Mental illness has become a rapidly increasing cause for concern within the workplace and very few people know how to navigate this. Dr Ellie's book gives comprehensive advice and practical words of wisdom from her years of experience that will be extremely reassuring to anyone who is struggling -- Jonny Benjamin, MBE, mental health campaigner, writer, filmmaker & public speaker
Groundbreaking . . . so relatable given the current way we approach our work -- Amy Wall * Woman's Way *
The book's comprehensive chapters are heavily imbued with [Dr Ellie Cannon's] own brand of infectious enthusiasm for sorting out work-related health issues . . . [the book] will, I am sure, be empowering for large numbers of patients . . . I am quite happy to recommend the second addition the the Cannon canon to those GPs who have patients who are struggling -- William Mackintosh, GP and Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners, South West Wales Faculty * The British Journal of General Practice *
