Increasing Accessibility of Mental Health Resources for Child Victims of Domestic Abuse in Southeast Asia

During the Covid 19 pandemic, rates of domestic abuse have increased greatly across the globe. It has been considered by many the “pandemic within a pandemic.” The Southeast Asian Region is one of the hardest hit, worsened by the extreme negative stigma surrounding mental illness and the lack of accessibility for mental health resources. As a result, higher numbers of victims suffer from PTSD and Depression and are left feeling isolated and hopeless to cope. Our committee focuses on increasing the accessibility of mental health resources for these victims and combating the stigma surrounding these issues.
