Mental Health Struggles and Experiences: How do ASEAN university students cope in the virtual setting?

While many Southeast Asian countries are reopening borders and resuming in-person and on-site activities, the two-year hiatus full of home isolation, quarantines and social distancing caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has left several long-term effects on ASEAN society and the well-being of its citizens, including pervasive mental health problems among the region’s populace.
