To recognize the effort of students in learning & promoting mental health for the past 2 years, HIM Finale 2015-2017 was held on 24th June 2017 @ Rotunda, Exchange Square, Central to celebrate the graduation of Teens.
Dr Leung Pak-yin, Chief Executive of Hospital Authority and Mr. Jeremy Parr, Executive Committee Member of Mindset, Group General Counsel and Director of the Jardine Matheson Group were the officiating guests of the ceremony, representatives from Jardine Matheson Group, Kwai Chung Hospital, Education Bureau and other supporting organization were also invited. Trophies were present as token of appreciation for the supports from all the participating schools, NGOs, workshop speakers and students in the past two years. Without their support, the programme would not be as successful on promoting mental health and anti-stigma in the community.
Student representatives came on stage to share with us their happy memories and things they have learnt through the programme in these two years. They all agreed the programme not only enhance their organizational & interpersonal skills, the sharing of experience from Jardine Ambassadors also equipped them with planning and execution abilities. They are proud to understand more about mental illness to raise the awareness among their peers, and is able to serve person-in-recovery with a caring heart.
Students winning in the Joint School Talent Show have a chance to perform in front of the crowd. The drama is about a student struggling from depression, and how his family & friends encouraged him to seek help and support him on the way of recovery.
The prizes of Mental Health Illustration Competition 2017 also presented at the ceremony, all the outstanding drawings were displayed to the public.
