“How are we today?” was a sharing session, in which guest speakers and participants shared their stories of different Covid-19 mental health-related challenges, especially during the prolonged lockdown period. The conversations also reflected on how people have coped with their mental health stress.
In addition, this event marked the launch of a new, free resource listing mental health support services available across Vietnamese communities and people living in Vietnam.
