Contributing to the conversation around mental health
Press Play webcomic began as a collaborative personal project
Dear Press Player is a blog, where we compile resources for visitors seeking out more information after reading our webcomic
We also started a Facebook group for readers to discuss and share tips and tools on mental health, as well as support one another
We want to remind those of us with mental health struggles that someone else has been there too. Stay strong and seek help.
We also wish to encourage everyone to talk about mental health experiences more openly and honestly to combat shame and stigma.
Lastly, we’d like to inspire anyone facing any kind of adversity to make the leap from Perseverance to Play — we hope you’ll find the will and resiliency to not just survive, but live well and thrive.
We are two brothers who are storytellers in our own fields
We are not health care professionals and we do not receive/solicit financial contributions in the making of this project.
We launched this website in May 2019 in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.
Edward is based in Hong Kong and Elbert in Jakarta. We are currently concentrating on sharing information and resources, as well as exploring IRL offline gatherings, in the East Asia and South East Asia regions.
