Navigating the Mental Health System in Hong Kong

The public healthcare system in Hong Kong can be rather difficult to navigate, especially with the long waiting times and the difficult booking process. In this evening session, Dr Keith Hariman, Specialist in Psychiatry and former Chair of the Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists Young Fellow's Committee, will share about his experiences at the public healthcare system in Hong Kong, how to navigate through the process, some basic facts about what's available, and what other resources are available for mental health support.
