One in five employees will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lifetime. Increased stress and uncertainty, especially during this pandemic, can bring those symptoms out or make it more difficult for those already experiencing a mental health challenge, to cope.
This presentation will help HR Professionals, Leaders, and their organizations focus on the most effective and essential strategies to address these mental health issues now, that will help their people stay engaged, combat the impact of the pandemic, and build their resilience as they journey into the future.
The key is to recognize the warning signs and develop programs and supports to protect and support those who may be at risk due to the impact of COVID 19.
Why you should Attend:
Many of our teams were having difficulty coping with stress and were facing burnout long before COVID-19 came along.
Research is showing that our team's stress is heightened even further, and our teams are struggling to find their way through this pandemic. History and health indicators are showing us that the next pandemic will be a repercussion and crisis of mental health with increases in anxiety, depression, and even suicide.
Leaders who understand and prepare now for this crisis, will have teams that can thrive and stay mentally healthy during this continued uncertainty.
