What you will learn:

When it comes to experiencing anxiety, many people aren't talking about it. Why? Because they often feel embarrassed, concerned about the stigma of asking for help, or anticipate that things will never get better. But now, in the face of the global pandemic, anxiety is growing -- and so is our shared opportunity to start (or continue) a more helpful, healthy conversation about it. In this session, you will learn: How to become a trusted colleague that others can confide in; What to say and what not to say to someone with anxiety; How to support someone who seems overwhelmed all the time; And how to reduce stigma around mental health and create a workplace culture that supports success for all its employees.
