TECH TARIK is back. For those who are new, TECH TARIK is a platform for members of public can find out first-hand knowledge on issues discussed and connect with experts and like-minded people on issues they care about. This event will consist of speakers' sharing, moderated QnA and networking session afterwards. In other words, an upgraded public lecture with chance to interact with the experts.
We are known to foster no-holds-barred, brutally honest, but respectful discussion about a current subject matter.
We want to discuss and analyse different intersections of mental health and technology. Ultimately, we want to answer: "How can I take care on my own mental health better? How do I accommodate others better, i.e through technology?” Join in with the conversation over dinner and cuppa of teh tarik.

He will be sharing insights from research point-of-view and inject his personal observation. The purpose of the human library is two-fold, to show participants on how people from all walks of life deal with mental wellness and to showcase that challenges they face aren't isolated to themselves.
