Dear Members and Friends

There has been a lot of talk these last few months about the importance of mental health. That is a good thing. One of the silver linings of the pandemic has been the realization by many people that good health includes mental well-being at home and at work, now and always.

Last week’s session with Anthea Ong underlined the responsibility of business leaders to look after their own mental wellbeing in order to be able to look after their teams'. This is not some fuzzy fad. This is about empathetic and capable leadership facilitating the wellbeing of others to benefit their business and customers.

Far too many people still regard the subject of mental illness as something strictly for the asylum. This 19th century notion and the stigma it produces has no place in our homes and workplaces today. 1 in 2 people in Singapore have said in a recent survey they noticed a deterioration in their mental health during the last few months. That is hardly surprising given the stress which many people have felt and still feel.

We are here to help and the Chamber is setting up a Mental Wellbeing Interest Group as part of its Human Capital Interest Group. If you would like to be part of this group to help yourselves and others, please let me know at [email protected].

Be your best to give your best.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
