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. In the area of higher education, several issues emerged in terms of how students and educators have been coping while also maintaining productivity and performance under such circumstances.
