Registration Closed

Uncertainty and instability are major sources of stress for people, and these feelings of anxiety can have a profound impact on our mental well-being, this is particularly the case during the current COVID-19 situation.

Often, many experiencing mental health disorders do not seek professional help due to feelings of shame, lack of support, or simply lack of knowledge. It is estimated that in Hong Kong, 1 in 7 people is experiencing some sort of common mental disorder, and three-quarters of them do not seek professional help.

Joining us at this informational webinar on mental health is Dr Hannah Reidy, Chief Executive Officer of Mind HK, a registered NGO committed to improving and understanding mental health in Hong Kong, while breaking the stigma around it.
