Let’s Talk Mental Health

It is estimated that over a billion people currently suffer from a mental health challenge, placing mental issues among the leading causes of ill health and disability worldwide.
In this session, the panel unpack the contributing factors towards mental health challenges and, lined with their own experiences, discuss what help and support looks like.
In addition, in the context of getting help, other narratives on mental health existing outside of western definitions are explored.
And bringing it closer to home – why does stigma on mental health persist within our communities that are still reeling from a traumatic past?
