Mind Matters: How Does The Built Environment Impact Your Mental Health?

During the strictest lockdowns of this pandemic, many of us felt the loss of something we had taken for granted - the freedom to move around in open spaces, for our mental wellbeing. In today’s Mind Matters, we look at how the physical and built environment impacts our mental health. We explore this link in the context of urban development, recreational spaces, and community initiatives, together with Ellisha Othman, Managing Director, Thrive Well; Uta Dietrich, Think City’s Lead for Social Resilience; and Jane Leong, Mah Sing's Director of Group Strategy & Operations, who spearheads Mah Sing Foundation.
