Depression and Caregiving in the Workplace

CareTribe Hosted Webinar

In this approximate 50minute webinar, co-presenters, Sarahbeth Persiani, Certified Caregiving Educator, SPHR and founder of We Are Sharing the Sun and Lila Samady, a Care Navigator and licensed clinical social worker from Care Tribe review the symptoms of depression, identify who is at risk and provide strategies to help your employees and their loved ones with guidance on when to get professional help.

In addition, you’ll understand the family caregiver’s journey in context of the workplace, which underscores the changing role of managers and colleagues to support this important employee subset.
