Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast: NABS’ Louise Berube on helping the industry navigate the other pandemic – mental health

Those working in broadcasting, advertising and marketing already have high levels of stress, so for many in those fields, COVID-19 restrictions, the thousands of subsequent job losses, and juggling work from home with child care responsibilities, compounded existing day-to-day challenges.

As Louise Berube puts it, there are two pandemics underway. One is COVID-19, the other is mental health.

Berube works with NABS – one of the best kept secrets in the industry – that offers free, confidential support to media, marketing and communications professionals. She joins us on this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast to talk about how the pandemic has increased demand for their services, helping the industry navigate, and their upcoming Mental Health May initiatives.
