Wellness counselling an added benefit with expat health insurance

During this unpredictable time with the Covid-19 pandemic, taking care of one’s mental health is equally important, as mental and physical health directly affect each other. As people worldwide have lost jobs, family members, friends, and their “old normal,” the spotlight on wellness has grown brighter. But what about those who are expatriates in another country, such as Thailand?

Not surprisingly, a ground-breaking study that was published in the International Journal of Mental Health, found that expats are 3 times as likely to suffer from mental health issues. Those expats who suffer, are more likely to express or endorse feelings of being trapped, depressed or isolated. The study also found that half of expats were at a high risk of internalising common mental health issues like anxiety and depression. These findings point towards a dangerous niche that seems to be growing larger due to the recent instability.
