Revolutionizing Caregivers’ Mental Health:
Unveiling MindCare’s Impactful Journey to the Future
Drumroll, please! Introducing ‘MindCare: Proactive Mental Health Support for Caregiving Communities’, an initiative dedicated to preempting and alleviating mental health challenges faced by caregivers. Teaming up with FWD Takaful, this dynamic campaign aims to crush the stigma and challenges encountered by caregivers, such as parents, childcare providers, and elderly care workers, alongside our corporate partners. With a laser focus on Kiddocare’s bustling community, consisting of approximately 70,000 parents and care workers, this initiative promises to become their ultimate health sidekick, supporting not only them but their entire families too.
Officially launched on Wednesday, 22nd November 2023, ‘Mindcare: Proactive Mental Health Support for Caregiving Communities’ is an ongoing initiative, dedicated to nurturing the mental and emotional well-being of caregivers. MindCare is a platform where caregivers can find instant support. It will act as a safe space, where they can find help, guidance, access to experts and free assessment of their mental health using FWD Takaful’s FWD Mind Strength programme, a first-in-market digital health solution. This initiative raises awareness about mental health’s significance and acts as a comprehensive support system. In addition to the dedicated MindCare microsite covering various mental health topics, we extend this initiative across social media platforms, on-ground events, and partnerships with certified experts and medical professionals providing valuable insights and exercises to aid caregivers in maintaining their mental health.
Key Features of this Campaign:
a. MindCare Microsite: The MindCare Hub, a dedicated microsite, provides parents and caregivers access to mental health resources, assessments, and expert insights. This hub serves as a comprehensive, easily accessible resource for those seeking guidance and support.
b. Conversational Videos – Care to Talk: Hosted by the one and only, Che Puan Sarimah Ibrahim, this series of videos features discussions with parents, professional caregivers, mental health experts and professionals.
