In the Singapore Mental Health Conference 2021, it was announced that over 13% of participants in a study conducted in mid-2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, reported symptoms of anxiety or depression.

Despite the apparent prevalence of mental health issues among the population, it remains a rather taboo topic that is shunned in the workplace. In a 2022 networking session conducted by IIA Young Professionals Working Group on mental health, many young professionals were concerned about mental health in the working environment we face today, amidst rapid technological changes, agile working practices, the great resignation, among other challenges.

Post-COVID, more challenges await us – the impact of the Ukraine war, rising interest rates, stagflation, and not forgetting, climate change. With these challenges – are we confident we can keep ourselves mentally well enough to be ethical auditors the world so greatly needs?


  • Raise awareness on mental health among auditors and red flags to watch out for
  • Highlight ethical implications related to the mental health of Auditors at work
  • Provide an avenue to discuss these issues, and explore ways to achieve better mental wellness at work through a supportive and collaborative environment.

  • Review the 4 Principles in IIA’s Code of Ethics and explore how poor mental health may affect auditors’ethical judgements in these areas
  • Highlight ways in which a better working culture can be nurtured in the internal audit department, and practices to achieve better mental wellness at work
