Mental health is an ever increasing concern today. As leaders and teammates we can feel powerless to help those around us suffering from mental health issues like depression and anxiety. Navigating the world of mental health is a treacherous path that can lead you to accomplishing the opposite of your goals, or even ending up with issues of your own.
This talk will focus on summarizing a few common mental health issues in the tech / office environment. Giving attendees some tools for recognizing signs, understanding what's going on in their coworkers heads, and being supportive without being intrusive or overbearing. I will also focus heavily on making sure to maintain your own mental heath while trying to help others.
I end the talk with a short round table discussion to brainstorm and share ways attendee's have personally dealt with these issues.
This talk is for leaders and coworkers that want to be resources for their teams to help them with their mental health and get them up and running again.
