No one is above the anxieties brought about by the current pandemic. Some days, we feel a semblance of normalcy on how things used to be before the pandemic. Other days, we feel stuck at home, helpless with the things happening around us. COVID-19 has definitely taken a toll on our mental health, but there are ways to rise above these feelings of uncertainty.
So, how do we keep ourselves mentally healthy during these trying times?
On World Mental Health Day, KonsultaMD—a subscription-based telehealth service—has organized a free e-concert dubbed as #BeKindToYourMind, a mental health concert in the Philippines that aims to tackle the importance of taking better care and attention to our mental health.
KonsultaMD believes that music can bring people together. Through #BeKindToYourMind, the awareness concert aims to destigmatize mental health issues and let the audience know that KonsultaMD is there for them. This is why the concert takes on the theme: Take active control of your mental health. Join a community, get moving, talk to someone. We all need help at times. There is no shame in reaching out.
#BeKindToYourMind culminates in the month-long Mental Health campaign of KonsultaMD. Combining both music and conversations, the telehealth service wants to remind everyone that it’s okay to not be okay—especially in these times. It may be a struggle to keep it together, and that’s okay. Mental health is essential, and asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
Here are some of the performers to look forward to on #BeKindToYourMind concert on October 9, 2021, exclusively at KonsultaMD’s Facebook page and how they can remind you that your mental health matters.
Mito Fabie, better known as Curtismith, will join the Be Kind To Your Mind Concert to serenade our minds with soul-soothing music. This Filipino indie singer, rapper, and songwriter started in 2013 and became a rising artist in 2015 when he released his debut mixtape, IDEAL. With his recently released album “Museo,” you’ll discover that you’re not the only one in this journey as this music depicts his journey as a Filipino questioning his identity while living in a time of contradiction.
Be ready to cry your heart out and release some stress with Ben&Ben’s songs of hope, love, and positivity. This band, endeared by many Filipinos, touched the hearts of its fans with their heartfelt lyrics, unique musicality, and their electric vibe onstage. You won’t want to miss this night of hugot and healing with Ben&Ben.
Known as one of the finest young actresses of the Philippines, Nadine Lustre joins the concert with her debut album “Wildest Dreams.” Her songs show her vulnerable and honest self inspired by her journey in life. Initially starting her career in the entertainment industry as a girl group Pop Girls member, this award-winning actress has finally found her way back into the music industry.
