It's okay to not be okay - why should you care about your mental health?

Mental health and wellbeing have been a crucial aspect of life. This is especially so during times of the COVID-19 pandemic, where daily lives of people all over the world have changed considerably.

How has COVID-19 impacted us?

The past months have brought about significant challenges for many. Front-line healthcare workers are providing care in difficult circumstances around the clock, whilst going to work at the risk of bringing COVID-19 home with them.

For youths and working adults, we are adapting to working from home, with little face-time with colleagues, teachers, and friends which can impede our social connectivity. Livelihoods are also threatened as companies let staff go to save their businesses, or even shut down completely.

For the people with mental health conditions, many are experiencing even greater social isolation than before.

As such, greater awareness and support are needed especially during this time and age, and more can be done to lend a helping hand to those in need.

What is World Mental Health Day about?

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health.

It is a day that provides everyone the opportunity to work on mental health issues, to create meaningful conversations, and understand what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide. Shared by the World Health Organisation, the goal of this year’s campaign is increased investment in mental health.

It is important to remember that mental health conditions know no boundaries. It could very well affect your friend, family, or the person sitting beside you – while socially distant – even at work.

How is SThree supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our employees?

We launched a series of videos to touch on the different aspects of mental health and wellbeing, along with some tips and advice from teams across the world.

We may be in difficult times but remember that you are not alone. Talk to your loved ones or seek help early for your mental health.
