REFERRALS FOR BROS
MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY CONTACTS
No male-specific mental health services available.
The support for mental health is unfortunately very limited in Taiwan. Treatment for depression is poorly or not at all covered by health insurance. The most ludicrous of all is that the government's mental health department is combined with the dental department. There is no mental health support group for men.
