Key Take Away:
Just over one in ten adults will experience depression at some point in their life and often will do so in silence. With COVID-19, these numbers are increasing. Individuals experiencing depression often feel distant from colleagues, friends, and loved ones, and find it difficult to reach out for support, especially in times of crisis. As a leader, how do you help your employees who may be feeling sad, withdrawn, and hopeless?
With the Coronavirus (COVID-19), you are probably seeing employees who may be experiencing signs of the blues and depression. Research shows that it is normal to feel the blues during this crisis, but when that low mood and energy begin to take control and keep your employees from performing their normal activities, it becomes a serious issue. Successful leaders recognize the depression indicators and look for ways to protect the psychological health of their employees, while those leaders who ignore these psychological health needs, will struggle to be productive, service their customers, and be competitive.
Areas Covered in the Session:
• There is a mental health continuum that we all move along, and it is dynamic as we experience stress, challenge, and crisis.
• It is normal to feel sadness and the blues during a crisis, but when that low mood or energy begins to take control and prevent performing normal activities, it becomes a serious mental health issue.
• Successful leaders recognize the depression indicators and look for ways to protect the psychological health of their employees, while those leaders who ignore these psychological health needs, will struggle to be productive, service their customers, and be competitive.
