In this presentation, the Managing Director of Aha! Consulting, Joel Levin, discusses workplace resilience, wellbeing, and mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Joel asks the question: ‘How much is in your tank?’ He discusses how COVID-19 has changed the ‘new normal’ from a wellbeing perspective, as well as the strategies people are using to cope.
Joel explores what government communication professionals need to know about mental health, and how they can integrate citizen wellbeing into their communication strategies.
Joel has an extensive background in counselling, social work and skills development, but the advice he gives is general in nature. If you are experiencing symptoms related to mental health, consult a registered medical practitioner.
After watching this video, you will be able to:
- Understand how COVID-19 has affected your personal resilience and fuel levels.
- Identify the short-term solutions that Joel calls ‘chill pills’, and learn to instead implement effective long-term coping strategies.
- Integrate the personal experiences of COVID-19 (and other seismic events) into your communications-related work.
