MENTAL HEALTH and DIGITAL COMMUNICATION - How do we manage it and what are STRATEGIES we can IMPLEMENT?
The mental health effects of digital communication and managing social media channels are real. We need to talk about it more. In this month's episode we discuss practical strategies we can use to manage your own and your team's mental health.
A note of warning: will be talking about experiences of online abuse in this episode and in the show, so there may be content in this episode that could be confronting or upsetting. Please feel free to take breaks, skip through sections or reach out for support as needed. If you are in Australia, you can report serious online abuse to eSafety.gov.au who can help get content taken down quickly and connect you with counselling and support services such as Beyond Blue, Lifeline and 1800RESPECT. As you will hear, online abuse can have real impacts, especially on our mental health and wellbeing, and it is important for us to recognise this and to not be afraid to reach out for the help we may need.
