The conversation around mental health and wellness has become a vital part of our daily lives and conversations, especially during times like these where everyone has experienced the effects of COVID-19. Though the discussion of mental health is becoming more prevalent, there still remains a stigma and hesitance around seeking professional help, largely due to the perception and cost of such services.
According to a Singapore Mental Health Study, one in seven Singaporeans experiences a mental illness in their lifetime, and more than 75 per cent of them do not seek any professional help.
With numerous organisations and initiatives being introduced in recent years that focus on mental health and well-being, apps that centre around feeling good about yourself have also come into play. Unlike professional services that target mental illnesses, these apps aid users in prioritising their mental well-being.
As such, we’ve compiled a list of five apps (three of which are founded by Singaporeans, that aid you in finding and understanding your mental wellness), along with music playlists that you should definitely add to your library for some feel-good vibes.
