About the Webinar

As a society, we’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to ‘flatten the curve’. Now largely working in isolation, how are our teams coping with this? How do we balance productivity and mental wellness in our people with all this uncertainty? Questions such as these, and many more, will be addressed in this expert Q&A session with two mental health experts: Dr. Ryan Todd and Dr. Karen MacNeill. Dr. Todd and Dr. MacNeill come from both ends of the mental health spectrum: A psychiatrist (Dr. Todd) and a performance psychologist (Dr. MacNeill). The two of them also bring lived experience in the business world, as CEO and CPO of headversity, a workplace mental wellness solution. They will answer your questions on some mental health and wellness best practices for your organization during this time of transition.

Key takeaways:

  • Ways for us to be well and protect mental health individually, and for our teams
  • Employer responsibilities and best practices for managing employee mental wellness remotely
  • Ways to excel and build resilience amidst uncertainty
  • The role of technology in mental health and the transitioning workforce
  • Resilience skills for optimal functioning while working remote
