      A Healthy Mental Wellbeing To Take On The World

      ------------------------ A Healthy Mental Wellbeing To Take On The World ------------------------ “Two separate local studies have shown that when parents exert a positive and affirming influence in their children's lives, these young people experience lower levels of stress.” – The Straits Times “Train parents to develop kids' emotional, mental well-being” It takes more than good intentions to help our children develop into the person that we hope for them to be. As children navigate the world around them, influences from social media and their surroundings may set the pressure and stress to perform socially to a higher level. Besides keeping constant connections with them, what can parents do to guide their child to manage a healthy mental wellbeing? Join Dr Daniel Fung at this seminar, where there will be a focused talk on the mental health and mental illnesses in the young. He will be addressing signs and symptoms that parents can keep a lookout for in young children, to arrest the development of mental health issues. Come learn about what parents must look out for to develop and nurture the wholistic wellbeing of their child. ------------------------ Session is FREE.
