Nick Shen

Several years ago, actor Nick Shen supported two friends, both now in their early 30s, who had suicidal thoughts. Shen says one of them, who attempted suicide, had schizophrenia and spoke of people trying to “catch” him. The other friend had relationship and family problems and cut herself. Shen accompanied her on her visits to Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

Shen says perseverance is key to overcoming challenges, including mental health problems. He learnt this value over the years.

Centred around the pressing issue of depression amongst youths, HappYouth aims to provide youths with the knowledge of understanding stress and depression, provide skills to mentor other youths that may suffer or display early symptoms of depression, and curb youth depression and suicide rates globally by raising awareness amongst youths and their parents.
