Cultivating Good Mental Health Awareness at The Ivy School

The Ivy school kids

Each year millions of young kids face the reality of living with and struggling to manage their mental health challenges.

During May, globally many different organisations join the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. The idea is to fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families. If your leg was broken you would go to see a doctor immediately but when your mind is broken people choose to either ignore the symptoms or try to become a specialist themselves.

The stigma around mental health and treatment has long existed, even though this has started to change. Still, people hesitate to seek help or even talk about it with their loved ones for fear of being judged and facing unnecessary backlash. Simple logic dictates that if we are hurt anywhere, we must seek treatment to get better. One of the schools in Bangkok The Ivy School have taken steps to address this in a wonderful music and art therapy psychoeducation camp for kids running for 1 month from July 11th to August 10th.
