Mental health issues do not get the same attention and understanding as other health issues. They are often considered as individual problems, and not a cultural and social effect. Those who struggle with mental health issues also face various negative stigmas. Hear how creators and writers attempt to voice the importance of addressing mental health issues through their writings.

(This session is presented in Bahasa Indonesia)

Masalah kesehatan mental tidak mendapatkan perhatian dan pemahaman yang sama dengan masalah kesehatan lainnya. Mereka sering dianggap sebagai masalah individu, dan bukan efek budaya dan sosial. Mereka yang berjuang dengan masalah kesehatan mental juga menghadapi berbagai stigma negatif. Dengarkan bagaimana pencipta dan penulis berusaha menyuarakan pentingnya menangani masalah kesehatan mental melalui tulisan mereka.
