Mental Health Means

About Me

I am Natalie Cheung, a secondary school student at the Chinese International School of Hong Kong. I am aspiring to become a psychologist, in the clinical, educational or forensic fields. As an individual with congenital hearing loss on my left ear, I am also impassioned to reduce the stigmas surrounding the SEN (special educational needs) and people with health conditions or impairments.

Project Description

My 2022 UNITAR Youth Ambassador Asia-Pacific Program initiative was called Mental Health Means. The mental health discussion in society is still stigmatized, particularly amongst young adolescents. Hence, my initiative aims to bring together individuals and organizations to tackle the stigmas and misconceptions within SDGs 3: Good Health and Wellbeing and 4: Quality Education, by means of encouraging conversations between adolescents, parents/guardians and educators. I am continuing my journey to bring this project to life, by hosting a 2023 Hong Kong Youth-led Mental Health Conference on May 27, 2023 at CIS.

Achievements Since UNITAR:

Since graduation from the UNITAR ambassador program, I have been part of the ITS YCI Programme, and a youth panelist at the 2023 HK SDG Summit Event hosted by the CDNIS SDG Council.
