Tactics for maintaining Mental Fitness during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The CSSE is presenting a new Mental Health Webinar Series for our membership and the public. In partnership with the Alberta Municipality Health and Safety Association (AMHSA) and Alberta Urban Municipality Association (AUMA), we will be offering a weekly webinar facilitated by Dr. Bill Howatt from Howatt HR. These weekly discussions will examine the key behaviours organizations and individuals can do to maintain Mental Fitness during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The kick-off webinar will be a 30-minute webinar followed by a 10-15 minute Q and A that will be hosted on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 12 Eastern. The webinar will cover the foundational factors of mental fitness, as well as the impact the COVID-19 pandemic can have on your overall mental health.

Each of the subsequent webinars will be hosted weekly at the same day and time, and provide a 15 minute overview of a key micro-skill that you can do to support charging your mental health battery. After the 15-minute micro-skill review, there will be a 10-15min Q and A for you to ask your own mental fitness questions.

Register right away as there are only 500 spots available and we are sharing this opportunity with other organizations across Canada. Join CSSE as we spread the word on the importance of looking after your Mental Health during this difficult time, with weekly tactics you can apply immediately.
