CANCELLED - Good Morning North Augusta - Navigating Mental Health in the Workplace
Do you feel like Mental Health in the Workplace has more obstacles now that we are living in a Post Covid-19 world? The pandemic impacted people’s lives in so many ways including loss of income and loved ones as well as lasting side effects. Some are also trying to deal with restrictions we faced including isolation. These are just some of the factors that are driving a mental health crisis in the workplace.
Mental Health can be a silent killer and our June Good Morning North Augusta will focus on ways to navigate mental health in the workplace.
