Pre-COVID employee burnout was at an all-time high as people juggled work, and family - but now a new sheriff is in town. The new sheriff, called the new normal, has greatly impacted and influenced how we move. Post-COVID has created yet another level of challenges that have hindered the fluidity in which we live. Now the new normal has intensified the burnout pendulum due to the economy, sheltering in place, and new family conditions including elderly caregiving and homeschooling which is too much for anyone to handle. Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist, educator, consultant, speaker, and author Mike Veny, who despite living with mental health challenges throughout his life, has a desire to help others who may be experiencing the same discover solutions. Out of his struggles Connectivity & Conversations: A Workplace Mental Health Course was born which is ideal for employers but can be beneficial for anyone. The author is not only transparent in his mental health journey but this book displays solid resources for employers and colleagues to identify mental illness not only within themselves but in others. Understanding the warning signs and providing immediate support are essential in a healthy pathway to healing.
I fully enjoyed Connectivity & Conversations because Mike has structured this book in bite-size pieces where HR, a CEO, President, or anyone in upper leadership can clearly understand what is required to support those within their company who are struggling with mental health challenges. For a deeper dive into clarity and its benefits, each chapter asks some tough questions to find the level of competency of the reader because mental illness should never be taken lightly and must be thoroughly understood. This book explodes with a wealth of information and offers everything that you'll need from suggested readings and myths and facts to information about hotlines, websites, and what to expect once you call. A benefit for the reader is that Mike's company is accredited with the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) which allows the reader the ability to obtain Continuing Education Units (CEU). Mike, I appreciate all that you're doing for the mental health community and am glad that you took the challenge to make a difference.
