Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, parents have faced many new challenges as they took on roles supporting virtual learning and caring for young children in addition to their work responsibilities. This has significantly impacted the mental health of working caregivers, and caused businesses to shift the way they think about offering mental health support to their employees.
In the final installment of HealthCare Access Maryland’s spring “Re-thinking Mental Health” Speaker Series, our expert panel discusses the role of businesses in supporting the mental health and wellness of working parents. Panelists included Delegate Brooke Lierman – Maryland General Assembly, Larry Lopez – President – Green Job Works, and Jill Smokler – Founder, Scary Mommy.
