Taking Care: Mental Health Care in Professional Settings

Licensed mental health professionals join opera industry professionals to provide insights, tools, and resources for artists and creators to prioritize mental health during the pandemic and beyond.

Living and working in the same space has been a new experience for many workers during the pandemic. There are pressures — real and perceived — about time spent working, focus, and availability that greatly differ from what one experiences when working in a professional space.

How can we deal with issues like imposter syndrome and navigating negative relationships in a professional environment?
