Announcing Naluri's "Hey, How's Work Been?" Campaign for World Mental Health Day 2023

In light of World Mental Health Day, Naluri announces the launch of its latest campaign, "Hey, how's work been?". Rooted in the importance of understanding mental health in relation to the workplace, this campaign seeks to not only provide individuals with crucial self-awareness tools but also expand our understanding of regional mental health patterns.


A Free Gateway to Mental Health Awareness

Naluri offers a free mental health assessment as a central feature of this campaign. This initiative aligns seamlessly with our mission to empower individuals to understand and navigate their mental health journey. At its core, the assessment utilizes the DASS-21, a scientifically validated tool adept at gauging an individual's risk levels for depression, anxiety, and stress.

Moreover, 2023 marks a significant enhancement to our assessment with the introduction of the Thriving from Work Questionnaire (TfWQ). This assessment, developed by researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is meticulously designed to delve into the nuances of daily workplace well-being, capturing the intricate dynamics that shape an individual's professional and mental health landscape.

Together, these tools offer a holistic perspective, ensuring that every participant gains a comprehensive view of their mental state and its interplay with their work environment.


Building Southeast Asia's Largest Mental Health Dataset

Since the inception of our mental health campaigns, Naluri has steadfastly curated and maintained the largest mental health dataset in Southeast Asia. Each year has presented an opportunity to build on the foundation set by previous campaigns, weaving a rich tapestry of regional mental health insights.

  • 2021: Understanding how individuals coped amidst the pandemic.
  • 2022: Exploring how individuals navigated the challenges of post-pandemic life.

This year, 2023, we are setting our sights broader and deeper. We aim to unravel the intricacies of everyday life, with a special emphasis on the role of workplace conditions in shaping mental well-being. 

Furthermore, 2023 marks a significant expansion in our regional scope. While our previous campaigns encompassed insights from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, this year, we extend our reach to include Vietnam, painting a more complete portrait of mental health across Southeast Asia. With these advancements, we remain committed to our goal: offering the most detailed and expansive insights into the mental health dynamics of the Southeast Asian community.


Why Everyday Workplace Wellbeing Matters: The Heart of "Hey, How's Work Been?"

Work isn't just a place we go or a task we perform; it significantly shapes our lives. On average, individuals commit nearly one-third of their entire lives, or approximately 90,000 hours, to professional endeavours. But beyond the time investment, work often emerges as a central source of stress, affecting countless adults globally. With such a profound impact, it becomes crucial to understand and address the intricate relationship between our jobs and our mental state.

This understanding forms the backdrop for our campaign's key message: "Hey, how's work been?". While the phrase mirrors the informal, relatable questions we pose in friendly catch-ups, it resonates deeper than surface-level chitchat. It’s an earnest invitation to introspection, a gentle nudge prompting individuals to reflect on their work's role in their overall mental well-being. More than just an inquiry about professional tasks or challenges, it's a compassionate probe into the emotional and mental space, urging dialogue about how one truly feels.
