Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant challenges and additional pressures on the way we are working these days. Whether working from home or as an essential worker, there are new challenges and pressures that may be impacting our mental health and our general well-being.
This presentation will discuss what mental health is, how work may be affecting our mental health during this pandemic, and how building our own resiliency can help protect, and maintain positive mental health during this uncertain time.
