„Good Mental Health brings Peace“
One could see this slogan on many yellow T-shirts last Tuesday on Campus of the Royal University of Phnom Penh at the “Youth Mental Health Day”. The Department of Psychology, with financial support by the GIZ Civil Peace Service, organized this annual awareness rising event for the fifth time and more than 1700 students, lecturers and mental health professionals were following the invitation. Beside the booths of the 15 participating organizations displaying information on their work, several activities were offered like yoga, mini-counseling and art therapy. New highlights this year were six expert talks held in the big assembling hall, covering various topics like “Contemporary youth, social media and mental health” or “Most common substances use in Cambodia and its consequences” and have met an interested audience.
