The COVID-19 crisis has proven to be extremely stressful and very different than any other significant event anyone in our generation has experienced because:
- of its global reach
- the life and health risks associated with it
- of how sudden and rapidly evolving it has been
- its hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel
- we are required to isolate ourselves from friends and extended family
- the battle between key values of human life versus economic stability
- information about it is highly variable and different people process it differently
As a result of these factors, mental health can quickly degenerate if we do not take care of ourselves. Arden O’Connor, founder of O’Connor Professional Group, will provide tools and resources to maintain a good mental health and deal with the anxiety that the COVID-19 crisis has brought forth.
