October 2020 | Maintaining your mental wellbeing during this season by Dee Burrowes

Webinar Description

It is estimated that 1 in 4 people will experience mental ill-health each year which anxiety, depression or panic attack in any given week.

This results in a challenge and also an opportunity for organisations to strengthen the mental wellbeing of their employees. Organisations that invest in strategies and proactively protect and care for the mental wellbeing challenges will reap the rewards of a robust and resilient workforce.
Whether large or small every project is done through people. Project Human Resource Management includes the processes that organise and manage the people who have assigned roles and responsibilities for completing the project. As such there must be a balance which will maintain a peace of mind among employees. Never before have individuals’ been asked to shelter in a place where the lockdown was imposed globally. These are unprecedented in our lifetimes and as social isolation has started to impact mental wellness for most. 

It resulted in trauma in some ways as the general consensus of feeling held hostage or confinement under duress. It was sudden, no pre-warning of lockdown – The immediate pause on life and absence of face-to-face contact and physical contact I’ve noticed brought on symptoms of depression and anxiety. Everyone literally had the ground kicked out from underneath, increased stress-related symptoms, panic attacks, loneliness. Humans are social creatures and we do need that connection with others especially faces to face.

 Practical tools will be incorporated in coping during this pandemic.
