Bangkok - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there any particular mental health issues that tend to crop up at post, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (winter blues)?

Broadly speaking, I think Bangkok / Thailand as a post tends to be good for mental health, given that the city and country are vibrant, beautiful, with warm and sunny weather, and lots of mountains, beaches, and beautiful sights to explore. Not to mention the amazing food and availability of amenities (massages!). A lot of people choose Thailand after serving at a hardship or war zone posting for this precise reason. As always, your individual mileage may vary. - May 2022
