In Conversation with Kelly Coffey and Dr. Heather Munroe-Blum: Looking After Your Mental Health During COVID-19

Since the coronavirus pandemic began, the world has focused largely on the disease's physical impacts on human health. The subsequent mental effects are now discussed with greater importance, however, as COVID-19 continues to spread, young adults and college students remain at home and different levels of sheltering in place complicate our feelings of security.

In the latest episode of the Conversations podcast, host and City National Bank CEO Kelly Coffey speaks with Dr. Heather Munroe-Blum, a distinguished academic leader and administrator and an outstanding scholar in the fields of psychiatric epidemiology and public policy, about the damaging effects that a pandemic can have on mental health as people adapt to a new environment and upended social norms.

In addition to hearing about how Dr. Heather Munroe-Blum's legacy, research and experience in the fields of psychiatric epidemiology and public policy have prepared her for understanding different people's struggles during this pandemic, you'll learn more about:

  • The different ways the pandemic can affect mental health. For instance, the younger generation is struggling from social isolation more than others.

  • How you can adjust to a "new normal," which could require a greater focus on sleep, hydration and coping methods for feeling hopeful, happy and optimistic.

  • How people in leadership or governance positions can prepare their mindsets and teams for the present and future.
