Emotional exhaustion syndrome or ‘burn-out’ affects almost 1 in 10 employees in Europe. Two out of 10 employees feel stressed by their work in the Grand Duchy, chronic stress being the main risk factor for burnout. Burn-out is difficult to spot, sometimes wrongly diagnosed or inadequately treated. The PROTEA programme proposes an innovative solution based on the diagnosis and treatment of burn-out without hospitalisation, and with a high level of interaction with the professional environment.


Emotional exhaustion (also known as burn-out) is a serious psychological problem, characterised by its multidimensional nature, for which the symptoms can be emotional (demoralisation for example), behavioural (a lack of sleep for example), mental (a lack of concentration for example) and psychological (fatigue for example).

Emotional exhaustion syndrome is considered to be the result of chronic stress.


Any individuals suffering from overwork or fatigue, whatever their activities, can be at risk.
