Having to stay at home for a prolonged period of time may take a toll on our mental health and well-being.

Besides using self-care apps to keep you motivated, we have collated more mental health resources to tide you through these difficult times.

1. Live chat with The Inside Space

The Inside Space provides complimentary personal and professional development through their Live Chat system, ranging from a quick two-minute chat to a 30-minute coaching session.

They have over 20 trained facilitators from various backgrounds ready to chat with you, no matter the topic. If you are feeling bored, anxious or just need a listening ear, The Inside Space will be there for you.

2. Smôl tôk's New Normal online conversation cards

Known for their friendship-building card games which engage players in meaningful conversations, Smôl tôk by Starknicked now offers an online card deck specially designed for this circuit breaker period.

Aptly titled ‘New Normal’, start meaningful conversations with your friends, family or colleagues, and reflect on the changes you’ve experienced during this uncertain period.

Head here for the New Normal online card deck.

More than mindless fun, these cards can invoke players’ thoughts and reflections through various questions.
