BYLC holds a discussion on mental health

Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC) has hosted a virtual talk titled ‘Know Thyself: Self-awareness and mental well-being’ on the occasion of the World Mental Health Day.  

The discussion held on Friday focused on how young people can be more self-aware, notice patterns in their thought process to identify what helps and what worsens their mental state, and understand the coping skills which can be used to organise their thoughts. 

Adnin Mourin, manager (operations) of the BYLC, moderated the discussion while Ashique Selim, lead psychiatrist and managing director of Psychological Health and Wellness Clinic (PHWC), Monira Rahman, human rights activist and country lead of Mental Health First Aid Bangladesh, and Rubina Jahan, clinical psychologist and senior manager of the Mental Health Program at SAJIDA Foundation, spoke at the event.
