Mental Health: Covid-19 Impact on Education

Important information and ways to address the mental health impact of this pandemic. As the country begins to get back to school, the pandemic's impact on the mental health of educators, students, and families is a topic of major concern.

You may be asking:

What are some of the specific challenges to mental health experienced by educators?

How can educators and all of us help to reduce stress, build resilience, and prepare for the upcoming school year?

Dr. Stuart Lustic, Cigna's National Medical Executive for behavioral health, and Dorsey Hopson, Cigna K-12 Lead, discuss the current status of mental health and tools to help improve it.

Well@DU has partnered with our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) SupportLinc to provide a Return to Campus webinar below.

Return to Campus Webinar, hosted by SupportLinc: Wednesday, July 14, 2021, 12pm-1pm MST

As more and more companies are considering post-pandemic operating plans, it is becoming apparent that going back to pre-pandemic norms is not an option. Whether it is assessing the most productive work modalities, the mental health needs of employees, or simply understanding how our relationship with our work and our coworkers has changed, successful teams must maintain a responsive and adaptive approach in determining what is best for their corporate system and for the individuals in that system. This session will provide participants insights, tools, and resources to address those concepts, as well as practical tips and ideas of how to transition into this next phase of how we “do” work.
