Mind HK: “Our Mental Health Stories: Speaking Up Against Stigma”
25 May @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
Hosted by local mental health charity, Mind HK and MINDSET Hong Kong and sponsored by Jardine Matheson Group, in honour of its “More Than a Label” anti-stigma campaign, “Our Mental Health Stories: Speaking Up Against Stigma” is the first event of its kind featuring a series of personal stories on stigma and mental health from Mind HK’s ambassadors.
Available in English and Cantonese with over 10+ story sharing sessions, diversified mental health contents will be covered on the event day. Highlighted topics include: lived experience stories of stigma, conversations with loved ones on having experienced a mental health challenge together, what it’s like to be living in recovery from depression, anxiety and an eating disorder, managing a mental health diagnosis as a neurodivergent person, and many more topics surrounding mental health.
Mind HK hope to use these real-life stories and conversations to showcase, encourage and empower more conversations and actions around mental health. Ultimately, lowering the stigma against those suffering from mental health conditions and developing more accurate and positive attitudes toward mental health within Hong Kong society.
The event will be free to the public, and participants can choose to sign up for any or all topics that they are interested in.
