Today is World Mental Health Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness on mental health issues and encouraging people to find the support and resources they might need. The theme for this year’s Mental Health Day is ‘mental health is a universal human right,’ timely given what is happening in the world today.
One’s mental health journey is personal and can oftentimes feel like a lonely road, so it is so important to lean on others. The days and weeks ahead will surely be tolling as we learn more about last weekend’s attacks in Israel. It’s important to speak up and speak out if you need support from your community. We already carry heavy loads from day-to-day life happenings, so right now can definitely feel like ‘too much,’ and it is okay to ask for help.
Stability might seem impossible at times. It is imperative that we focus on things within our control. BOCA supports our team and our clients and encourages everyone to take the time they need regularly and especially during moments like now.
BOCA considers our team and our clients to be our family. Our family and friends have been directly and indirectly affected by the terror in Israel, and we are here to support them. The Jewish Agency’s Fund for Victims of Terror is one of the many organizations that is accepting donations to help the victims of this heinous terrorist attack.
Simultaneously, BOCA is currently at the HLTH Conference in Las Vegas, where the focus is all about health and wellness innovation. BOCA clients are here sharing the many ways they play a pivotal role in the health and wellness of people all around the world. Mental health has been bombarded on a global scale for the past few years, from pandemics and economic instability, to wars and now the horrific events unfolding in Israel. It can feel impossible to prioritize your mental health when it feels like the world is crumbling all around you. However, today reminds us that it is critical we not forget about it. Take care of yourself and your families during these devastating times.
