Author’s note: Reader Victoria sent me a link that might be interesting or helpful. She says:

I wanted to thank you for the mental health resources you shared here: freeassoc.com/tag/mental-health/. Good stuff!! I’m currently writing an essay for college about Mental health at the workplace, and this was very helpful.

While looking for more relevant information, I came across this recent article: https://www.websiteplanet.com/blog/email-mental-health-impact/

Nowadays, at work, email is one of the most used and effective tools to communicate, yet we are not aware that this could be one of the main stress causes affecting our mental health. I’m glad that somehow the writer cared about us by letting us know a list of steps to mitigate the email-related stress.

I would highly recommend you share this with your readers as an additional resource, I’m sure you would be doing a huge favor to a LOT of them.
