For the 11th time the Selo symposium took place in Zug, Switzerland, on November 9, 2021. After a long time being isolated, participants enjoyed the opportunity to meet in person and engaged in lively discussions. This year’s symposium was focused on “Burnout and depression in the world of work – mental illnesses caused by stress and pandemic-related strains”. It aimed to elucidate the questions how safety measures such as lockdowns influenced the development of mental stress and illnesses, and how they can be prevented. Health professionals, HR delegates, experts from patient organisation and afflicted person eagerly followed three lectures and three workshops and participated in animated discussions.
