About the issue:
In this issue, we highlight the importance of understanding and pursuing good mental health.
Continuing our long tradition of celebrating the region’s rising scientists and trailblazers, we present the 2023 edition of The Asian Scientist 100.
As health systems gear up to support mental health challenges, it is often the healthcare workers themselves who suffer unusually high degrees of stress and anxiety. In our cover story, Care for the Caregivers (p. 08), we put a spotlight on this neglected issue.
In The Climate Anxiety Issue (p. 12), we highlight the growing connection between mental health and extreme weather events brought by climate change. Equally fascinating is how our gut microbiome influences our mental health. We explore this topic in Got a Gut Feeling? (p. 16).
