Bangkok, April 10, 2024 –The innovative mental health festival “We’re Being เป็น อยู่ คือ(เรา)” hosted by The Nook, created by Love Frankie, a social impact agency, has successfully concluded its four-day event with impressive participation numbers, exceeding expectations.

During the opening ceremony, Assoc. Prof. Tavida Kamolvej, Deputy Governor of Bangkok, said that the lifestyle of Bangkok people is so hectic from work that sometimes they are stressed without even realizing it. From the health examination policy of 1 million people, now more than 100,000 people have been examined, and more than 70% have stress. They need friends and space to talk. When we have statistics like this on stress, we must not ignore them. Therefore, having an activity like this is very satisfying because any form of mental health space is made to create a safe space for everyone. We want to make mental health accessible to everyone.

“We believe that “We’re Being” festival has started an important conversation and strengthened the community’s dedication to understanding and supporting mental well-being. The success of this festival has laid a strong foundation for future events and initiatives,” the spokesperson added.
