Community Conversations: The COVID-19 Pandemic & Women–A Look at Women’s Mental Health and How We Come Back

Presented by Sheppard Pratt

As the COVID-19 pandemic changed how we lived our everyday lives, no one experienced shifts in their roles at home and at work more than women. Disproportionately burdened with homemaking and childcare duties, many women took on new and expanded challenges – with no end in sight. Dr. Zaveri, women’s mental health expert, and Brenda Mannix, LMSW, discussed how the pandemic has led to burnout for many women–and how to get re-energized and re-invigorated. To view the full discussion, see the video below.
