Wanchai OCD and Anxiety Support Group
This is the first English Speaking OCD and Anxiety Support group to run in Hong Kong. I’m hosting an OCD and Anxiety support group in Hong Kong as there is a lack of support for people with mental health issues in Asia. There is huge stigma associated with mental health disorders and people feel afraid to share their thoughts in fear of being judged. My passion for mental health education and support stems from a whole range of avenues such as having a background in Psychology, being trained as a yoga for stress management instructor, mental health first aid practitioner but MOST of all from having experience with anxiety and knowing how it can affect one’s life if tools are not in place to help manage it. The support group aims to provide a platform and community where those struggling with anxiety disorders are free to express their fears, share their coping skills and strategies to manage anxiety and discuss research and topics related to anxiety. This support group aims to build a place where people feel safe and valued in a non-judgmental and confidential environment.
