R-Health Revolution tackles the risks of burnout
Problems of stress, depression and anxiety at work affect 15.8% of the European working population . In France, according to the survey by the Think for Great Place to Work institute published on 7 January 2015 Nearly one in two employees (48%) say they are confronted with burn-out situations or very high levels of stress for themselves or their family members. According to this study, 17% of employees say they are potentially burnt out, an increase of 5% compared to a study conducted in 2012, which estimated that 12% of the French working population, one manager in five, is potentially burnt out. The term "high-risk burn-out". An alarming upward trend that deserves to be taken seriously.
At a time when some thirty members of parliament want to include burnout in the list of occupational diseases, the R-Revolution Santé pilot centre in Montpellier, which specialises in health prevention, is already providing answers to this disease of civilisation, which involves a triple suffering: intellectual, emotional and physical.
Preventing Burnout in Businesses
The health of a company depends on the health of its employees...It is therefore essential to prevent cases of exhaustion, and to anticipate them in order to avoid them! Everyone, at an individual level, can act on their burn-out, just as the company can act for its employees.
The transdisciplinary team of R-Revolution Santé offers specific training courses for employees, executives or company managers, allowing them to identify the symptoms of burn-out, and to prevent them by means of non-drug therapies (physical activity, sleep, relaxation, diet, emotion management...).
The format of the "Burn-out: Recovering the balance" courses is adapted to the possibilities of the companies (from 3 to 5 days, grouped or spread over different periods). Based on group dynamics, practical and pragmatic workshops, led by health professionals, these courses help to find a satisfactory life balance.

Maintaining a balance between your professional and private life, having a healthy lifestyle and work, being attentive to your living environment both inside and outside the workplace, knowing your circadian rhythms better so you can rest, etc., these are just some of the themes addressed at R-Revolution Santé.
In theory, it may seem obvious to take care of oneself, but in a tense economic context, these good resolutions are increasingly falling by the wayside. Caught up in their "To do list", many assets are no longer able to disconnect and make sense of things. Symptoms may appear: anxiety, insomnia, loss of energy, difficulty concentrating ... R-Revolution santé is committed to providing personalized solutions.
Workshops and discussions led by professionals specialising in the treatment of burn-out (doctors, psychologists, etc.) allow everyone to see more clearly and then put into practice the advice of specialists in the field.
Physical activity to relieve tension, relaxing and detoxifying treatments in our institute to learn how to relax, healthy food menus with foods specifically selected for their "anti-stress" virtues are available to trainees. Supervised and coached by doctors, nutritionists, physical activity teachers, physiotherapists, masseurs, and by professionals in the field of well-being and relaxation: a tailor-made programme and a personalised follow-up are determined with each participant.
The global approach allows everyone to identify the risks of burnout and to carry out a lifestyle assessment to prevent burnout symptoms and avoid the spiral that leads to depression.
