Mental health issues and getting help (in Mandarin Chinese)
In this video, Faustina chats with two others about their personal experiences with mental health issues, including the difficulty of living in a foreign country, far from loved ones, and trying to navigate mental health care in a second language. They hope to help others in this situation see that mental health challenges are common and no one should feel ashamed, and they encourage everyone to seek help. Talking to professionals to be really helpful. If a person can’t speak English, there are people like these ladies who can help get appointments, and the NHS has access to translation services.
