Busting the Superhero Myth – Our Mental Health during a pandemic



For several months, we have experienced significant restrictions on how we live and work. Whilst Victoria’s strict lockdown protocols are working to suppress the virus, for many of us, social isolation has taken a toll on mental health.  Our new reality, and the social, mental and emotional deprivation that accompanies it, highlights that what we do in life and who we do it with, are critical to how we feel.   

In this presentation, our speaker will share research on the relationship between work, stress and mental health and what these relationships mean in the context of a global pandemic. Whilst grounded in empirical research and global best practice, the talk with have a personal theme, focusing on what we all can do more of to prevent stress and manage our wellbeing in today’s complex environment.
