Nadine Lustre, Curtismith, Ben&Ben top bill KonsultaMD’s free mental health concert

Telehealth service provider KonsultaMD is bringing some of the country’s top artists together for a night of healing, music, and fun in the first ever mental health concert on October 9, 5:30pm on KonsultaMD’s official Facebook page.

 

The line up includes 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 is 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 September 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. 

 

There were also talks about navigating the new normal, keeping relationships during the pandemic, and asking for help as an adult with speakers such as Dr. Gia Sison, Thirsty and Thirty, Kara Gozali, Mark Agas, Maxene Magalona, Zara Carbonell, Dr. Kenjee Dee, Dr. Aubrey Señeris, and Kylie Versoza.

 

Customers can get a free one-month health plan with 24/7 unlimited access to licensed mental health professionals until Oct 31st. All they have to do is download the KonsultaMD app and use the voucher code BEKINDTOYOURMIND to avail of the promo.

 

KonsultaMD is a 24/7 telehealth service provider manned by skilled and licensed Filipino doctors who give medical assessment and advice on basic healthcare and mental health. It is one of the portfolio companies under 917Ventures, the country’s largest corporate venture builder.
