Business leaders and their employees are facing significant challenges, not only in terms of the economic impact of COVID-19, but also the feelings of anxiety, worry and distress many people are experiencing in relation to the pandemic.
On Thursday, 7 May, Business for South Africa (B4SA) hosted a webinar for business and media to help companies navigate and manage the impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of their leaders and employees.
The B4SA Mental Health webinar was led by B4SA’s Judi Nwokedi, with three panellists: Professor Garth Stevens, President of the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA); Dr Colinda Linde, Clinical psychologist and board member of the SA Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG); and Cassey Chambers, the head of operations at SADAG.
B4SA would like to thank SADAG and PsySSA for their valuable insights and contribution.
