Head On Talks promotes a culture of understanding, acceptance, and responsibility for mental health. It started in 2018 as an advocacy and awareness initiative for mental health.

Head On Talks in the 2020 pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Head On Talks explores important discussions to navigate our time as a society dealing with community quarantine and a public health emergency. Aside from physical sustenance (food), shelter, and hygiene, we are also coping with managing our mental wellbeing, sense of safety, and emotional hygiene. We have also launched Head On Chats, which are free 1 hour talks and discussion forums for current issues.
