15:00 - 16:00 CEST
Many of us are dealing with the emotional challenges of life in isolation during the COVID-19 crisis. We have already shared some advice from our lead psychologist, Helen Bartimote, on Maintaining Your Mental Health During the COVID-19 Crisis.
Helen and our CEO Jamie Dobson recently talked about this topic on a podcast by InfoQ. (We will share that podcast here soon.)
This month, Andrea Dobson-Kock, head of our Talent Team and a psychologist herself, will join Jamie and Helen to talk further about mental health maintenance during troubled times, and exchange ideas with you on the topic.
Join us on 16 April to hear our hosts discuss the importance of maintaining our mental health, and to share your views and ideas with the community!
