Ashoka Fellow
South Korea

Empathetic persons
This description of Hye-shin Chung's work was prepared when Hye-shin Chung was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
In a society that has chronically higher levels of violence and suicide rates than any other OECD countries, Hye-shin is enabling ordinary citizens to help themselves and people around them overcome their emotional and psychological trauma. By equipping ordinary citizens with the power and tools of promoting mental well-being, Hye-shin has created a solution whose scale is on par with the scale of the mental health crisis besetting South Korea.
