|Towards My Inner Han-gu-ghin: Mental health and Recovery|
By S W Tor
Mental health and Recovery presents the concept of mental health and recovery in New Zealand context. It has been written by a team of dedicated Sae Woom Tor members with the hope of proving a potent tool for guiding Korean individuals and communities in addressing the mental health needs. Towards My Inner Han-gu-ghin (Korean/Korean-ness): Mental health and Recovery connects a link between experiences of Korean New Zealanders and their mental health needs, with a strong emphasis on Korean cultural themes and perspectives. The booklet includes a step-by-step guide on how to get help from a range of mental health organisations, a brief introduction to major mental illnesses, different types of treatments/ interventions available and useful contact details to get help.
