Prioritising Mental Health: Embracing a New Era of Well-being

World Mental Health Day:


On the esteemed occasion of World Mental Health Day, celebrated every year on October 10th, we find ourselves at a critical juncture in history. With the global pandemic and unprecedented challenges that followed, mental health has become an urgent concern for individuals, communities, and organisations worldwide. In light of this, IC24 is taking a proactive stance by inviting renowned mental health coach, Matt Wilson, to lead a transformative discourse on October 17th, 2023. This initiative aims to equip our colleagues with the necessary knowledge and tools to foster their mental well-being and support others, signalling the dawn of a new era of mental health.


The prevalence of mental health-related issues has skyrocketed over the past few years, affecting all walks of life. The COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbated this crisis, causing immense emotional distress due to social isolation, financial uncertainties, and fear. According to reports, depression and anxiety rates have surged dramatically, impacting individuals of all ages and backgrounds. It has become imperative, now more than ever, to prioritise mental health concerns and dismantle the stigma surrounding them.


IC24's Commitment to Mental Health:


Acknowledging the significance of mental health, IC24 has charted a path towards a healthier and more supportive work environment. As an organisation, we fully understand the inseparable connection between employee well-being and enhanced productivity. Therefore, by inviting Matt Wilson, a distinguished mental health coach, we intend to facilitate a transformative dialogue that will ripple across our entire workforce.


Matt Wilson, a revered mental health coach, has a wealth of experience in empowering individuals to cultivate resilience, self-care, and emotional well-being. His expertise lies in destigmatising mental health concerns and providing tangible strategies to achieve personal growth, even in the face of adversity.


His upcoming visit on October 17th, 2023, is a testament to IC24's commitment to the welfare of its employees. Through this interactive session, colleagues will be empowered with the right knowledge and tools to manage their own mental health effectively.


Equally significant is the focus on fostering a culture of support and understanding within our organisation. By delving into topics such as empathetic communication, active listening, and recognising warning signs, this presentation will equip participants to assist their colleagues, creating a network of emotional support within IC24.


As IC24 takes the lead in prioritising mental health within our organisation, the impact resonates far beyond our boundaries. By embracing a proactive approach to mental well-being, we are setting an example for other institutions to follow suit. It is our collective responsibility to shatter the stigma surrounding mental health, encouraging open conversations, and nurturing an environment of empathy and support.


On this World Mental Health Day, with IC24's extraordinary initiative in hosting Matt Wilson's transformative discourse, we commemorate a new era of well-being. By engaging in open conversations and equipping ourselves and our colleagues with the necessary tools, we pave the way for a future where mental health concerns are met with compassion, understanding, and proactive support. Let us embrace this opportunity to create a healthier, more inclusive, and resilient world for ourselves and generations to come.
