Podcast #323 – My Observations of Post-Pandemic Mental Health for Those 55+ in Age
In this episode, I want to discuss mental health issues that I have seen around me. We just spent 3 weeks back in the United States and I had many meetings with friends, past clients, and professional colleagues. I heard many of them speak about the mental health issues they or their families were experiencing in this post-pandemic world. I wrote about this in my last Career Pivot Insights newsletter, and I receive more responses than I have ever received. It obviously resonated with a lot of people.
This episode is sponsored by the Career Pivot community but more on that later.
I am going to keep this short as I think it is an important topic.
Topics I discuss are as follows:
- Burnout and the need to take a break
- Job has changed due to climate change and now dealing with unhappy customers
- Mental health issues due to businesses collapsing due to the pandemic
- The once tolerable commute is now intolerable because of unreasonable demands of management
- Going down a rathole of conspiracy theories
- My own battles with mental health and how I now deal with it
If anything in this episode sounds familiar I want to encourage you to get help. I have experienced a lot of mental health issues in my life and it took some real prodding to get help. I have sought help multiple times in my life and I am always glad I did.
The pandemic has been hard on all of us. If you need help go get it.
