A small South African Healthcare provider is offering mental health support and counselling to everyone who needs it during these unusually difficult times.

 

South Africa (05 January 2020) – 2020 was a year that made me realise that the world is filled with lots of sadness, and many people are dealing with stuff that we can’t even comprehend. People are walking around us while fighting the biggest monsters, dealing with things that we will never understand.

And moving into 2021, people may find it exceptionally difficult, given the reality of the Second Wave of COVID-19. During this time we have seen an increase in mental health-related problems such as burnout, anxiety, stress and even suicide.

Mondia Health is a well-established hospital group with addiction recovery and wellness facilities across the country in Port Elizabeth (Sunnyside), Bloemfontein (Woodlands) and Bethlehem and still under their current Nurture Wellness banner in Queenstown, Vereeniging, and Umhlanga.

The President’s recent imposing stricter measures – especially in hotspot areas – as well as giving the nation notice that even stricter restrictions may be implemented with immediate effect where and when necessary to curb the spread of the virus, has reignited the anxiety and uncertainty caused by not only the pandemic but also the broader impact thereof on people’s livelihoods. The increase in depressive symptoms and feelings of loneliness and isolation are also expected to increase rapidly during this time, leading to people finding themselves in a mental health crisis.

Mondia Health supports people struggling with Mental Health-related challenges. Mental Health refers to our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

“Mondia Health follows a wellness approach. Wellness does not require you to be free of all stress and medical conditions, it is about embracing YOUR life AS it unfolds, learning the difference between what you can change and what you cannot. Wellness is ultimately a lifestyle, a process of understanding oneself better, adjusting and preparing us to cope with the changes that tomorrow inevitably brings. People are much more open to this image and approach than the traditional psychiatric and addiction treatment that contains a lot of stigma and negativity.”

Their team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers, counsellors and nursing staff who create, implement and monitor treatment programs catered to each patients’ needs. Mondia Health will give the right assistance that will stop you from feeling overwhelmed and out of control. People will have the opportunity to learn and experience that to make better choices and replace old, destructive thoughts and behaviours with new, healthy habits will give them back control and enable them to live a balanced life and thrive. We also offer free support groups on a weekly basis

Mondia Health offers support for:

  • Depression
  • Bi-polar
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Stress-related conditions
  • Substance abuse support at the Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth hospitals

To access the 24-hour support during this time, reach out to Mondia Health via Email, Call or WhatsApp on +27 (0)744 11 77 88 or support@mondiahealth.co.za.
