Our mental health is one of the most crucial yet undervalued parts of our lives. Especially with the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health issues have soared as countless people are left feeling isolated and vulnerable – but you are not alone.
Richmond Foundation, through the support of Epic and its Epic for Good initiative, is launching OLLI.chat. OLLI.chat is a confidential, online, and free 24/7 live chat, designed to offer emotional support and practical guidance to anyone in Malta and Gozo who needs a little helping hand to keep moving forward. Lovin’ Malta is helping to promote the service including creating an attention-grabbing OLLI.chat promotional video for Richmond.
One issue that many have when it comes to their mental health is speaking about it face-to-face, letting people know that they are struggling with these issues.
You’re free to share as little or as much as you feel comfortable with and we will help you from there.
On the other side, you’ll be speaking to Richmond Foundation’s mental wellbeing support team, who are made up of psychology graduates that have received extensive training by Richmond and in Mental Health First Aid. Each one also operates under the supervision of a Richmond psychotherapist.
In this day and age, mental health continues to be a rising issue that often goes without the proper recognition and support.
Considering that, according to the latest statistics, more than one in six Europeans are affected by mental health issues, the topic could not be more pressing.
If you are feeling like you need help, reach out – whether through OLLI.chat, your friends, your family or other experts; reach out. There will always be support for you to find, wherever and whenever you may look for it.
