Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Hon. Lisa Margaret Smith
It is very difficult for me to believe that my year as President of WWBA is nearly over. WWBA has accomplished a great deal this year, which is particularly remarkable in light of the absence of in-person events, as a result of the pandemic. While some of us have been able to work in our offices rather than being fully confined at home, the vast majority of us have had very little social contact, other than with our immediate families, for more than a year. The effect of Covid-19, and the limits on our movements and our personal interactions with others, has had an effect on our mental health, both individually and collectively. It is therefore appropriate for this to be the topic of my message this month, because May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
