It has been more than a year since the world was forced to reckon with the impact of Covid-19.  Changing work patterns, lengthy and expensive quarantines, school closures, and anxiety about family and friends, have resulted in a state of collective anxiety and stress. Against this backdrop, attendees will learn: 

  • What are the signs and symptoms of stress and anxiety or more serious mental health conditions?
  • How can employers support their staff during these unprecedented times?
  • How can employees access treatment and how have insurers responded?

Join us as we hear from a spectrum of perspectives on ways employers can support their teams to ensure optimal mental wellbeing during difficult times.
