To say that life has fundamentally changed since 2019 is something that you’ve all heard before. What we don’t talk about as much are the complex feelings so many people have as a result of that process. While we have mourned the physical loss of so many people in the past 2 years, it’s also important that we acknowledge the feelings of longing, grief, and loss of how we used to go about our daily lives. Not knowing how to name those feelings or how to deal with those emotions can sometimes be as painful as the loss itself. Whether it was a change in how you work, how you socialize, how your relationships have changed, or things even bigger than that – we’ve all lost a certain way of how we lived our lives in the ‘Before Time’. We want to normalize discussing this topic in our community, and that’s why we’ve invited a mental health at work specialist to come speak with us for that purpose.
Melissa Doman, MA is an Organizational Psychologist, Former Clinical Mental Health Therapist, & Author of Yes, You Can Talk About Mental Health at Work (Here’s Why And How To Do It Really Well).
Join us for a fireside interview with Melissa so that we can get a better understanding of what so many of us have experienced, why we need to normalize these discussions and practical tools we can use to manage this transition we’re all in. After the interview, there will be an opportunity to ask Melissa questions in real-time about the content that was discussed and we absolutely encourage you to participate in that portion of the event. You never how your question, or the resulting answer, may benefit others in our community. If you would like to learn more about Melissa, her work, or her book – please visit www.melissadoman.com. We look forward to seeing you there.
