    You’ve summarised the key points very well! On the point of the government investing in its citizens, I’d also like to add the government will also need to rebuild ‘trust’ in its citizens as citizens are reluctant to seek professional help in fear that by doing so, their data may be used against them in their career. Until then, mental illness shall remain a double edge sword.

    This was worth the reading ! It’s devastating to see and hear that South Koreans are stressed and have high expectation of themselves. It’s like a competition for rank and gpa. In general, suicide is everywhere and it needs to be talk about more to parents, teachers, elders, and of course students at all ages.
