About the event

Have you ever felt pressured by societal standards of beauty and success?

At our next Mums Meet Up, we will be featuring Stephanie Ng, a dedicated mental health advocate and psychologist. Stephanie will lead a compelling discussion on overcoming body image issues and dismantling the cultural narratives that shape our perceptions of beauty, success, and worth.

In her new book, Big Bites Break Boundaries, Stephanie shares her personal experiences with eating disorder recovery alongside her professional journey as a mental health advocate and researcher. This work is not just a narrative but a call to challenge and redefine the societal standards of appearance and achievement that pervade Hong Kong culture.

Ticket price: $150 (coffee, tea & finger food)

As a research fellow with local mental health charity Mind HK and a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Hong Kong, she conducts research on how personal stories can help transform stigmatising beliefs and attitudes toward mental illness in Hong Kong, and incorporates these insights into evidence-based mental health initiatives.
