MVS2: HIM Sports Day 2015-2016
“HIM Sports Day 2015-2016” was held on 20th February, 2016 (Saturday). The purposes of the activity are to enhance Teens’ understanding on mental illness through interaction with Person-in-recovery, reduce stigmatization and misconception on mental illnesses, thus enhance the social inclusion.
115 Teens in HIM Programme and 98 Person-in-recovery from different organizations were divided into 22 teams and participated in 6 games including tag-o-wall, rope skipping, 2-man-3-feet, etc. Students and Person-in-recovery had to understand each other’s strength & weakness, and through planning and co-operation they face the challenges together to achieve their best possible results..
By participating in athletic competition, Teens not only enhance their understanding on mental illnesses, but also had an opportunity to socialize with person-in-recoveries. Both the Teens & Person-in-recovery built up self-confidence through achieving tasks & social interactions which are essential for inclusions.
