Fixing “broken” youth not enough to tackle mental health issues — nurture them to flourish in life too

Speaker: Isabelle Tan, Dr Chew Han Ei, Associate Professor Vincent Chua 23 Nov 2022

Mental health is much more than just the absence of mental illness; it is also about the presence of positive factors that promote overall well-being. Isabelle Tan, Research Assistant and Dr Chew Han Ei, Senior Research Fellow, both from the Social Lab, Institute of Policy Studies at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at NUS, together with Associate Professor Vincent Chua, from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, share their views.
