On January 23, 2020, the first case of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) was confirmed in Hong Kong. More than two years have passed as we witness the virus spreading beyond borders and shifting the ways we work, live and interact, while new variants of the pandemic continued to emerge. From alpha to omicron, from quarantine to social distancing, mental health is the cornerstone of individual and societal well-being? How to bounce forward during burnout in the pandemic? How can we build our resilience when support groups are physically far from us? How can we come out of the pandemic together?
