We are experiencing a significant worldwide health crisis, the coronavirus which has killed over 200,000 people in the US at the time of this recording.  We now wear masks to protect ourselves from this virus, work at home, not socializing, and living more in isolation than ever before.

This takes a toll, even on the healthiest individuals.  But, it’s not just the current state we are in that is impacting mental health.  It existed long before the pandemic and will exit after.

Today a please to have Sally Spencer-Thomas here with us to discuss mental health in the workplace and home.  This is a timely topic as September is also Suicide Prevention Month.

Sally is a Psychologist and International Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Impact Entrepreneur and Keynote Speaker.
