A follow up Q&A interview with Richard Harris after our July 9th, 2019 session in the AA-ISP Training Tuesday series: Fighting The Gravity - An Open Conversation on Mental Health. (Replay here: https://bit.ly/2XRUd5H)
In this training session, we created an open dialogue around mental health where we discussed ways to cope with stress and maintain a healthy work-life balance, and how to ask for help. In this Q&A session, we reinforce some of the topics discussed and dive a bit deeper with the following questions:
• How do we define the difference between being just sad/stressed and having depression/anxiety?
• Now that we’ve defined it, where do we start, how do we ask for help?
• What are some suggestions for coping tools and support systems?
