Oguche Agudah, the Chief Executive Officer of PenOp, Emphasized the need for managers and business leaders to always look out for the total wellbeing of their subordinates and employees,_

Also speaking, Dr. Gbenga Adebayo, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Living Health International, a renowned Health and Wellness Solutions Company in Nigeria, said organizations and individuals should start developing wellness and resilience plans to safeguard mental health.

He said there is a need to stop the stigma of mental health adding that “Social support, prevention strategies, and effective coping skills were essential tools for building strength, managing time, and living a stress-free life,”
