Talking to Le Soir, François Perl, Director-General of INAMI, said that it is essential to ‘look at these two illnesses together: burnout and depression have increased in parallel in recent years, and one is often diagnosed wrongly as the other…’. For a number of years this confusion has resulted in significant statistical inaccuracies: between 2010 and 2015 the number of cases of burnout doubled, but many of those cases were wrongly classified as ‘depression’.
