The COVID-19 pandemic has been the most significant disruption of our lives. Its impact has been far-reaching, altering our work habits, communication styles, and even our priorities. Most importantly, it sparked a widespread discussion about mental health.
In this episode, we are joined by guests who wrote about mental health in USC Center for PR’s 2023 Relevance Report. They take a deep dive into how workplaces have addressed mental health issues and its growing relevance in contemporary society. We will uncover the factors driving the growing awareness of mental health concerns, from the influence of social media on younger generations to the heightened attention employers are paying to their employees' mental well-being. Our panelists also discuss themes such as the great resignation and employer-driven mental health initiatives in the context of public relations.
Whether it's by seeking out support for yourself or advocating for mental health initiatives in your organization, everyone has a role to play in promoting mental health and well-being.
