TORONTO, July 23, 2020 /CNW/ - Morneau Shepell, a leading provider of total wellbeing, mental health and digital mental health services, today announced the launch of its original and thought-provoking weekly podcast, Living Well. This introspective listening series comes at a time when the world is under more stress than ever before.

"Now is the moment to have open discussions about what really matters as people manage situations they never expected."

From notable personalities, fascinating figures, and business and community leaders, discussions will involve personal experiences and practical advice as guests explore how mental health and wellbeing has been impacted by COVID-19.
