October has been declared Mental Health Awareness Month in South Africa. In support of this government-mandated event, local startup Mygrow is presenting a five-part video series in which Mygrow Co-Founders Mark Baker and Theran Knighton-Fitt will reflect on and explore the inevitable emotional fallout and organisational impact from multiple COVID-19 waves over the last 18 months.

The Cape Town-based startup presented a series called Mental Health and Wellbeing in COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic where they identified key themes in anticipation of what was to come. Eighteen months on these themes are still relevant but have individuals and teams and businesses managed to respond appropriately especially as it relates to maintaining mental and emotional health.

In fact, Mygrow suggests that with issues like stacked trauma, burnout, job losses and organisational restructuring on the rise, these themes need to be revisited in the light of the far-reaching effects of the pandemic on our work and our lives.
