Telehealth service provider KonsultaMD brought some of the country’s top artists together for a night of healing, music, and fun in the first mental health concert on Oct. 9, 5:30 p.m. on KonsultaMD’s official Facebook page.
The lineup included popular actress and singer Nadine Lustre, indie rapper, singer-songwriter Curtismith, folk-pop band Ben&Ben, and two of the nation’s hottest DJs — Nix Damn P and Marvelous.
The concert was the culmination of KonsultaMD’s month-long “Be Kind To Your Mind” campaign which aimed to spread awareness about the importance of mental health among Filipinos.
Cholo Tagaysay, KonsultaMD CEO shared that the Philippines has come a long way when it comes to mental health awareness, although understanding that there is still some work to be done in order to standardize mental health services in the country.
He said, “More often than not, what stops a patient from seeking professional help for their mental health is the shame or stigma that it’s admitting to weakness, but what we want Filipinos to know is that seeking help is actually a form of strength. That is why, we at KonsultaMD remain committed in making consultations accessible to those who need it through our platforms and programs. This concert is only one of many that we hope to roll out for our patients and customers.”
Artists Nadine Lustre and Ben&Ben have been long-time advocates for better mental health and well-being — using their individual platforms to spread awareness and encourage others to take the step in caring for themselves and others.
Last Sept. 12, KonsultaMD, together with Mental Health Matters actress, model, and former beauty queen Kylie Versoza launched the campaign to support World Suicide Prevention Day. The activities included free yoga classes and free meditation and sound healing.
Customers can get a free one-month health plan with 24/7 unlimited access to licensed mental health professionals until Oct. 31. All they have to do is download the KonsultaMD app and use the voucher code BEKINDTOYOURMIND to avail of the promo.
