A lot of uncertainty ahead of the creation of the new department, and one of my colleagues is anxious & concerned; it is impacting their wellbeing and mental health.
Sorry to hear. Major changes can really be anxiety-inducing. I hope that this change ends up being a good thing, or at least not a terrible thing. I hope your colleague takes time to take care of their self and that they get through this.
We are talking a lot about coping strategies and resilience. My colleague will need to find what works for them. Thank you for your supportive words.
