What we Think & Say Matters: How Unconscious Stigma May Worsen Our mental Health

Mental health stigma remains a barrier for the recognition and treatment of mental illness, including amongst health care providers and staff. Often due to this unconscious messaging, many are missing out on opportunities for relief. During this webinar we will discuss stigma, “burnout”, and where the research stands.

Presenter, Julia Riddle, MD is currently an assistant in the department of psychiatry pursuing a postdoctoral fellowship in reproductive mental health at the Women’s Mood Disorder Center at Johns Hopkins.

Women often feel overworked and overwhelmed. After all, you have a lot on your plate. And you may feel like that plate is overflowing with demands since the pandemic hit. It’s important to recognize how COVID-19 may be impacting your life and relationships so you can take steps to improve your wellbeing. Women can join a safe space to talk about how they’re doing emotionally. They’ll also hear how others are coping with COVID-19 and everything else. During this one-hour online discussion, women will have the chance to:

  • Connect with their peers to share how they’re dealing emotionally amid COVID-19
  • Talk about social isolation and the virtual environment
  • Build coping skills and resilience

Spots are available on a first come, first served basis. Please register as soon as possible if you’re interested. We want women to bring their thoughts, feelings and questions. And remember: You and all your household members can call us 24/7 for in-the-moment support and resources.

Equal Parts Podcast from Care@Work

Brought to you by, Equal Parts is a podcast for working parents who are trying to balance it all while caring for the people they love — including themselves. Being a working parent is hard. But you do it for the ones you care for, because they’re the ones you care most about. You can never be prepared for everything that is thrown your way — whether at work or at home. But, the Equal Parts podcast will try to make this a little easier for you. We will talk to experts, authors, and parents who will share their insights, advice, and tips on how to navigate parenthood and professionalism — at the same time.
