Mental Wellness

Empowering Recovery through Nurturing Connection

DayToDay Team
October 10, 2021

DayToDay Health is an acute care organization. We aim to support and strengthen systems of care, one person at a time. We are the first company to provide end-to-end, digital-first acute care services globally.

In the pursuit to live a happy and meaningful life, sometimes life itself can throw a curveball at us. A diagnosis, surgery, follow-up procedures. Furthur being sent home with instructions to revamp their lifestyle to prevent future complications.

While health is a treasure, its lack can become a treacherous journey to traverse. Research suggests that when going through a surgery or other major procedure, it is common for patients to experience anxiety, low moods, and a loss of agency.  

Amid the pandemic, psycho-social concerns have raised the global burden of mental health distress. The WHO suggests worldwide mental health conditions are increasing with a 13% rise in mental health conditions and substance use disorders in the last decade (to 2017). Mental health conditions now cause 1 in 5 years lived with disability. Around 20% of children and adolescents have a mental health condition, with suicide the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds.

To support patients in their care journey DayToDay Health's preventative approach is rooted in mindfulness, positive psychology, and humanistic psychology to enable complete recovery.

DayToDay delivers the service via a blended digital (app-based) and human coaching service, ensuring mental support for patients for the duration of their acute care episode. We conduct psychological assessments for patients within our care to address their mental health needs. Also, DayToDay tailors the content, coaching, and other psychological support to the patient's needs. Our approach to mental health and wellness is a preventable one. Patients get tools and resources to build their well-being. The early signs of mental ill-health can be identified and supported with evidence-based psychological interventions and referrals to further psychological services if needed. Evidence suggests that mental health support before, during, and after a procedure is vital for a patient’s overall well-being, recovery, and sense of agency.

By taking small steps, creating improvements in your daily routine, one can increase their ability to lead a more fulfilling life.

  1. Connect: Initiating dialogue by taking the first step to connect with a friend, family member, colleague, or even a stranger can open doors of fresh perspective. Nurturing these relationships can make us feel happier and more secure, giving us a better sense of purpose.
  2. Be active: Designing a creative way to devote a few minutes of physical exercise suitable to age can significantly improve their mental health and well-being.
  3. Take notice: Amid your busy day, take a moment to savor your day, your routine, become more mindful of the chore you could be engaged in to increase awareness.
  4. Keep learning: Rediscover an old interest or try something new by signing up for a course, trying a new recipe. Setting yourself a new challenge will increase your confidence which can improve your mental health.
  5. Give: Giving to others is good for you. Do something nice for someone else. Thank someone. Volunteer your time or join a community group. See yourself and your happiness linked to a larger community can be incredibly rewarding and create connectedness with the people around you.


We all experience the ebbs and flow of life. Having and sustaining good mental health is a lifelong pursuit. Being patient and compassionate with ourselves, reaching out for support is a sign of strength and courage. Standing by the motto, “Mental health care for all: let us make it a reality.” Let us reach out and initiate dialogue with that one person next to us. Let us truly harness the power of presence, listening, and human connections to traverse the adversities that life throws at us.
