Take Care Of Your Mental Health, First Lady Advises Nigerians

In the face of societal pressure and issues with social media, First Lady Oluremi Tinubu has advised Nigerians to prioritize their mental health.
In honor of the 2023 World Mental Health Day, Tinubu announced this in a post on her X on Tuesday.

She also asked Nigerian adults to support good connections among the kids and assist them in overcoming their emotional difficulties.
The First Lady urged everyone to pay more attention to their own and other people’s mental welfare as we observe World Mental Health Day in 2023 with the theme “Mental health is a universal human right.”

“The challenges of our times have tested our resilience especially social media and societal pressure which has left many faced with emotional and psychological burdens that have taken its toll on their mental wellbeing.

“It is crucial that we recognise the significance of mental health and take collective action to support those who are affected in one way or the other.”

She added, “As we strive for a more promising nation, let us prioritise engaging our youth in candid conversations that will enhance their mental health, help them manage their emotions and expectations better while promoting healthy relationships and ultimately improve their productivity.

At this juncture, I call on our traditional rulers, religious leaders, NGOs and all well-meaning Nigerians to join the Government in showing concern and support for those seeking help. Together, we can create a society where mental wellness is a priority, and every individual feels valued and contributors to societal growth.”

“Together, we can build a healthier, more compassionate nation for all,” she added.
