Taiwan Counseling Psychologist Union
In recent years, we have experienced both natural and human-caused disasters, ranging from the Covid-19 pandemic to Russian invasion of Ukraine. As global citizens, we all are affected by these events. With the profound understanding of “no one is an outsider”, we believe that it is important to recognize that we all are in the same boat. Therefore, we sincerely care about those who are impacted by conflicts and the pandemic, not only overseas Taiwanese, but also anyone regardless of your birth place, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, race and ethnicity, religion, occupation and social economic status, and mental and physical status. While you attend to each other’s physical health and safety, we encourage you to also pay attention the mental and physical health of yourself, of your family and friends,’ even strangers in your community. Your proactive greetings and expression of care may provide a safe psychological space for each other. We will not feel alone when we have each other, and will be empowered to face the challenges together. Let us build a supportive network for world peace with safe relationships.
Taiwan Counseling Psychologist Union wants to invite all counseling psychologists and helping professionals to pay attention to the mental health of international friends and students in Taiwan. During this uncertain time, they may need an extra support and care from us. We also need to continuously watch for people’s potential emotional distress related to conflicts and the pandemic, and protect the heart peace of the world with our profession.
