Mental Health as Restrictions Ease

Pivoting back to being out in public and resetting our mindset to feeling safe is something all of us are thinking about right now. How to be resilient and cope with being back in the offices, schools and public venues, as well as how to interact in person again and the fear that encompasses all of that. It certainly has increased the anxiety in many employees.

Join us as Ward Blanchard, from The Blanchard Institute, talks about this shift in mindset and how to not only cope with your own anxiety, but also how to be empathetic toward others.
