More Than a Label: This is Our Story is a new book from local mental health charity Mind HK in partnership with Jardine Matheson’s Group’s charity initiative, MINDSET, which hopes to influence the public’s perception towards people with diagnosable mental health conditions. This book encourages the public to look beyond the stigmatising labels associated with mental health diagnoses. It is a collection of personal stories of mental health journeys, which seeks to showcase realistic portrayals of people who have faced mental health experiences, their recovery journey, and their holistic identity. This book hopes to raise awareness of the stigma towards persons with mental health conditions, celebrate the resilience and strength of people in recovery, and educate and equip the public with mental health knowledge to support themselves and others when in need. In today’s event, Ophelia Tam of Mind HK moderates a conversation with three Mind HK Ambassadors, Jonathan, Xanthe and Hilary, who share their stories and mental health journeys.
