Bare It All: Let's Talk Women's Health - Mental Health Edition

You don't have to wait until you have a breakdown or burnout to talk about mental health. Just like physical health, there are ways to stay healthy mentally as well. And yet, it's not a topic that we speak openly about. Perhaps because we think there's stigma attached to it, or that it's a sign of weakness.

✨✨✨ About Our Speakers ✨✨✨
💁‍♀️ Loneliness, Intimacy and Technology by Shu Yi 💁‍♀️
Loneliness is what we have all experienced at some point of our lives. Despite being such a universal emotion, loneliness has a negative reputation – something we are “not supposed” to feel. As present technologies reshape how we connect, let's explore how we can rethink and redefine loneliness, while removing the stigma. Let's learn to build more meaningful and intimate relationships !
Shu Yi received her Masters in Clinical Psychology from HELP university in 2015. Since then, she has been working with individuals working dealing with relational issues, anxiety and mood disorders, sexual orientations as well as self-development. She is currently practicing at The Red Clinic. Her work emphasizes on cultivating courage and empowerment through genuineness, acceptance and respect. During her off days, Shu Yi enjoys watching Netflix, eating (or both at the same time) and make up!

💁‍♀️ How The Mind-Body Relationship Shows Up In Life by Azreen 💁‍♀️
Do you feel like you are merely surviving or are you thriving in your busy life? Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can affect our biological functions in both positive and negative ways.
What we do with our physical body by way of nutrition, movement, and even our posture can impact our mental state. This results in a complex interrelationship between our minds and bodies.
With Azreen's talk, you can learn how to harness this mind and body connection as powerful allies that can be used to serve us in living the life that we want to live.
Azreen is a Clinical Psychologist who works primarily with women at The Red Clinic and Anjung Naluri. She has worked with adults and children at the UPM psychiatric clinic at Hospital Kajang, the pain clinic in Hospital Selayang, and the Center for Psychological and Counselling Services at HELP University. Clients and patients she has worked with include those who had struggled with depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), adjustment issues and life transitions, chronic pain, relationship conflicts, finding meaning and purpose in life, among others.
