💡 How to Product Manage Your Mental Health with Beth Anne Katz from Microsoft
This interactive workshop teaches participants how to self-monitor their mental health state, walks them through creating an individualized mental health action plan in preparation for times of decreased health, and informs employers on how they can create a supportive mental health environment that allows employees to thrive. Attendees will walk away with a concrete, self-written set of metrics indicating the state of their mental health and an individualized action plan for when those metrics indicate declining mental health.
There are three key things participants will walk away with after attending this workshop:
How to identify and track current levels of mental health
How to take action when mental health isn’t at optimal levels
How leadership in the workplace can foster a better environment for mental health
