Many of us have been challenged in ways we never thought imaginable, especially when navigating the wide range of feelings and disruptions to our daily lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Pervasive uncertainty, coupled with a lack of clarity around the right things to do, have amplified feelings of distress and distrust and triggered in many the need for self-preservation. This instinctive survival mode can short-circuit our capacity for cooperation and erode confidence in our ability to adapt and disrupt our sense of safety and meaning. In this session, we will explore two important questions: Why is this pandemic so hard on so many people? What can we do now to strengthen our collective mental health, and begin to replace fear and dread with a sense of focus and hope?

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the wide-ranging impact COVID-19 has had on our mental health and rates of burnout
  • Differentiate burnout from increasingly common mental health concerns like anxiety and depression
  • Identify strategies to avoid a burnout culture while promoting mental health awareness
