Event information 

We are still living in uncertain times and this webinar will discuss the impact of Covid-19 on mental health for potential and current employees with disabilities now that many organisations are planning a return to the workplace in 2021. This pandemic has resulted in the biggest changes in our work practices in our lifetime so what can your organisation do to support employees.

We last visited this topic in our June WAMinar, which you can watch back here, where Fiona Coyle, CEO of Mental Health Reform discussed the immediate impact of Covid-19 on the population. Now, here we are towards the end of 2020, what else has changed?

We are delighted to have Fiona back as our keynote speaker where she will be highlighting some new studies and what employers need to be mindful of as they make a plan to return to the workplace.
