Mental health matters, especially during these challenging times as we navigate an unprecedented global pandemic. If you have burning questions about mental health or wellness, join us in this AMA on 8/27 (all day, Pacific Time) for meaningful discussions about the topic, and ways to cope on this journey.

An AMA is an online forum that gives the opportunity for the community to ask questions and have a discussion with a panel of community experts on a particular topic. During this AMA, post your questions and feedback in a new thread within the Humans of IT AMA space, by clicking on, "Start a New Conversation" at the top of the page. 

 

This month, we're thrilled to have three community representatives - Chris Gill, Jess Dodson and Ryan Yates - across various countries including the US, Australia and the UK share about their own mental health journey, and steps they've taken to cope with anxiety, uncertainty, fear and change. Remember that you are not alone in experiencing these emotions - as a community, we can rally together to support one another and exchanging tips on self-care and mental wellness.

Important note:  The responses shared by our community panel are their own personal opinions, and do not represent the views of Microsoft and its affiliates. It should not be regarded as professional medical advice either. If you need professional help, please refer to the below resources for more information.
