Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, ASEAN Foundation, seek to maximize the potential of digital technology and be more connected with youth, because we are “Thinking of You(th)”!
We proudly present a newly podcast channel to provide youth with a platform to exchange and grasp ideas, experience, and knowledge through interesting topics with the context of Southeast Asia. We will invite insightful guests from ASEAN and beyond to share their experience and knowledge. We will explore all the opportunities the region has to offer and discuss on current trend.
Mental health has long been a concern among the youth, and sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased feelings of isolation, loneliness, and anxiety.
In this episode, we talk about taking care of our mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic with our guests, Eksalack "Peun" Oudomsouk and Dr. Chantharavady Choulamany from Wecare—a social enterprise from Lao PDR devoted to elevating the lives of people living with mental illness.
Listen with our host, Nattaya Kay S. Jaratruangsaeng (Nat), and learn about how we can care not only for our own mental health, but also for that of our loved ones. Remember: you are not alone. We are always thinking of you.
