GBD158. Bending, not Breaking! Live, Learn and Work Through Disruption. (Mental Health Awareness 2021)

 1 in 5 people in the workplace have been experiencing overwhelm during the pandemic, including people who normally rate their RESILIENCE as 'very high'.

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week (UK) and Mental Health Awareness Month (USA), returning guest Katie Demain of iOpener Institute explores how the pandemic has transformed our individual, organisational and leadership approaches to mental health and wellbeing.  We discuss the theme of this year's campaign - Nature - and the importance of connection as a powerful counterbalance to uncertainty.

Talking Points. These are some of the topics we discussed in this episode.

  • what's changed since she last joined us on the podcast for UK Mental Health Awareness Week 2019,
  • what new research reveals about how professionals are coping with this unprecedented level of disruption
  • the unusual benefits of 'forest bathing'
  • the risk factors of mental health
  • the concepts of Unproductive Uncertainty versus Uncertainty Capability
  • the ALGEE acronym used in Mental Health First Aid
  • the 10-stage Mental Health 'how to' for leaders.
