COEH Builds Bridges: Workplace Violence & Mental Health
01/20 - 01/21/2022,  12:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Please join COEH UC Berkeley and UC Davis for COEH Builds Bridges: Workplace Violence and Mental Health. This event will be held online / virtually via Zoom.

 In addition to the physical risk of SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgent need to address vexing accounts of workplace violence, psychological health and well-being in the workplace, and enduring health disparities. This year's symposium will feature panel discussions on violence in healthcare and in general industry, examine trends of violence in the California fast-food industry and in healthcare, and encourage discussion on how occupational and environmental health professionals can collaborate across disciplines. Participants will also explore psychological and behavioral health among wildland firefighters, persistent COVID-19 associated neurocognitive symptoms and strategies for improving mental health access for historically underserved communities.
