Mental Health Week: Note from the CEO
Greetings Team MCM
This week is dedicated to raising awareness on mental health. Mental illness affects everyone directly or indirectly through family, friends, or coworkers.
Despite mental illness awareness, dedicated health support and councelling services in the country, stigma and misunderstanding are still unfortunately prevelant and widespread. This prevents some people from seeking the treatment needed to lead healthy lives. According to statistics 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, this is due to the fact that everyone will face challenges in life that can impact their mental health.
Today, allow me to challenge you all, to play your part in increasing awareness about preventive and curative mental health interventions. Let us be more aware of those around us that may be experiencing mental health challenges and show we care. The Employee Assistance Program is there to assist you with handling any psychosocial challenges you may encounter in your daily lifes, so please be encouraged to utilize this service. Always remember that "your health is your wealth!"
