During these four months we provided 66 counseling sessions (21 online sessions and 45 onsite sessions) for 12 clients. Due to the COVIC-19 situation in Thailand and the area where we live, we were not able to conduct onsite session with our child as well as we found some challenges to continue the session through online channel. Therefore, we need to drop some sessions with our young child clients.
However, we also have some good news to report while providing our service during these four months. We found that there were more and more people are keen to look for help when there found mental health challenges. For example, there was one of the clients who reached out to us and asked if she could come and see our counselor. As counseling service normally costs quite expensive to Thai people and mental health system in the government hospitals may not be able to fulfill the needs of all clients. We are pleased to be a part where people could open their heart and burden with.
We also started our Twitter Spaces (or HUG Spaces) where we could expend the knowledge of mental health to people who are surfing on the application. We got some positive feedbacks from the audience especially students gaining understanding on the mental health issue and find some techniques to look after themselves and better support people who are struggle with mental health issue.
Hopefully, HUG’s counseling work would keep continue supporting Thai people both children and adults during the difficult time. We are confronting loss and conflict which losing people’s hope to their day-to-day life, but we are not giving up to help them find their strengths and resilience.
