About this event

People and organizations start to talk about mental health more and more, but there is still a huge stigma around it as people misperceive it is intangible, which is completely wrong.

Do you know

- 45% of GP appointments in the UK are due to psychosomatic diseases, also called medically unexplained symptoms?

- psychosomatic diseases are largely related to psychological issues?

- GPs often refer them to counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists?

- patients feel these professionals spend most time listening to their problems without doing anything else?

Come join us each Friday at noon UK TIME to explore with our event facilitator, Hong Zhou (MBBS MSc MPH MHFA), a series of holistic approaches empowering ones to improve mental and physical health.

Hong Zhou has a Bachelor Degree of Western Medicine, Master Degree of Health Science and Master of Public Health Program from China, the UK and Finland. She is also a Mental Health First Aider, England.
