Addressing Employee Grief and Emotional Distress During and After COVID-19

Employees and their families are going through a lot right now.  The aftermath in terms of mental health issues will be significant.

Join us as we explore how the deaths of colleagues, friends and family members, fears of infection and mortality - and the loss of daily life as we’ve known it - is affecting us. Hear how COVID-19 social distancing may increase risk for prolonged grief, and the evidence base for this condition and other stress and trauma related symptoms.

What help and resources will be most helpful to employees now and in the months to come? 

NEBGH’s Medical Director talks with Dr. Naomi Simon, Director of the Anxiety and Complicated Grief Program at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, who also recently led a work group on COVID-19 death and dying exposures within the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Disaster Committee.
