“Our Mental Health Stories: Speaking Up Against Stigma”, is the first event of its kind featuring 10+ story-sharing sessions with Mind HK ambassadors. Hosted by Mind HK and MINDSET Hong Kong and sponsored by Jardine Matheson Group, in honour of their antistigma campaign “More Than a Label”, the event will feature a series of personal stories on stigma and mental health from Mind HK’s very own ambassadors.
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, will be covered through the sessions!
We hope to use these stories and conversations to showcase, encourage and empower more conversations and actions around mental health.
The event will be free to the public, and participants can choose to sign up for any or all events they are interested in.
Date: 25 May, 2022（Wednesday）

About ‘More Than a Label’
“More than a Label” is Mind HK campaign in partnership with MINDSET Hong Kong, which stems from its goal of changing and influencing the public’s perception towards persons with diagnosable mental health conditions. Funded by Jardines Matheson, this campaign encourages the public to look beyond the typical, stigmatising, labels associated with mental health diagnoses. Through personal stories of mental health journeys, we want to showcase realistic portrayals of people who have faced mental health problems and recovered and depict their holistic identity.
