To mark this week’s World Mental Health Day 2020, MindHK has launched their #behindthemask campaign.
As wearing a mask has become part of our daily lives in the COVID-19 pandemic, it masks our own and others’ expressions, hiding what we are feeling. This campaign seeks to encourage people to speak up about how they are feeling #behindthemask, seek help when needed, and check in on others.
Take some time and check-in with yourself and people around you, by asking them how are they feeling #behindthemask?
Visit www.mind.org.hk/behindthemask to learn more about the campaign, COVID-19 mental health resources and available pro bono mental health support.
Mind HK’s initiatives providing support to those in need:
- The COVID-19Mental Health Relief Scheme is offering short-term pro bono mental health support to those that have been affected by the pandemic, particularly low-income groups and those in quarantine centres or hospitalised.
- Help Me, Mind HK’s new virtual assistant, uses artificial intelligence (AI) to make access to information on mental health and support easier to find.
- COVID-19 and Mental Health Resources
