Doctors, hospitals, and mental health advocates rally behind National mWellness Day

With only a few more days to go before National mWellness Day, a growing number of volunteer doctors, health experts and mental health advocates join forces with mWell for the biggest nationwide online medical mission.

mWell by Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (PSE: MPI), the Philippines’ fastest-growing health app, brings healthcare closer to Filipinos nationwide as it provides free online consultation via the mWell app on August 27-28. This program is mWell’s response to the need for medical advice to help our countrymen rebuild their lives in the new normal.

The event first held in September 2021 is now made even bigger with a wider number of family doctors, specialists, and even mental health experts from all over the country—on call for free, for every Filipino.

Doctors from Makati Medical Center Foundation and Makati Medical Center Wellness Center have volunteered their time to provide free online consultation via the mWell PH app. Recognizing the importance of holistic well-being, mental health experts from MindNation have signed up to offer free counselling. Aside from volunteer doctors, National mWellness Day 2022 is made even stronger by diverse partnerships in one fully integrated platform. Among those powering up the advocacy are MPIC Foundation, as well as top insurance companies– PhilCare and Generali. Unilab, MedExpress, 24 Alkaline-C and PiCur antioxidant are also on board.
