Hindsight 2020. What COVID has taught us about our mental health and where to from here.
In 2020 we, as a population, experienced the most significant shared trauma of our lives. The effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our mental health has been profound and will be experienced for years to come. It is therefore important that we proactively focus on protecting our mental health.
In this talk, the role of the workplace in protecting and promoting mental health is addressed. Strategies for leaders, businesses and teams are discussed, including the importance of having an accurate assessment of a team’s level of function, and how to prepare for and implement change in order to make psychological health and wellbeing as important as physical health and safety.
