The webinar series is designed to help businesses and communities cope with changes caused by the pandemic. More than 600 people have attended the first four webinars and learned from community and business leaders on how to cope with the challenges of the pandemic, including the importance of self-care, mental health, leadership, and legal responsibilities on the job.

Employers, workers, and community members are invited to participate in the free monthly WSN Feed Your Brain Lunch and Learn webinar series to discuss the most pressing issues we are all facing and to learn from experts and each other.

At the Sept. 30 webinar, participants have the opportunity to learn from Irene Caufield-Cook, M.S.W., R.S.W., owner of Caufield Counselling and Consulting, who will discuss the psychological impact of pandemic fatigue on employees, and what employers can do to support employee mental wellbeing during times of uncertainty.

“More than 100 people have already registered, and participants share their questions in advance,” says host Angele Poitras, WSN Community Engagement Specialist. “We shape the presentation into themes that address all of the excellent feedback we received.”

  • What are the long-term implications of extended periods of stress?
  • Mental health and wellness strategies to manage increased mental load associated with the pandemic
