The Effects of Shift Work on Depression and Anxiety
- Main contributor
This project intended to study the relationship between shift work (specifically third shift), and its effects on depression and anxiety symptoms. Working nights has shown to have serious negative side effects on one’s physical and mental health. Hypotheses were made that those working third shift would experience higher levels of depression and anxiety symptoms than those who did not work overnight. Participants surveyed in this research worked either first, second, third or a rotating shift, and were asked questions pertaining to levels of anxiety and depression in a typical work week. After analyzing the data from all eligible participants, the study found that there were significantly higher levels of depression in those working third shift, rather than first shift, and that there were significantly higher levels of anxiety in those working second shift rather than first shift.
