Introductory Workshop cum Hospital Visit
In order to raise the awareness of the students and provide proper information on mental illness, Health in Mind Programme organized an Introductory Workshop with hospital visit at Kwai Chung Hospital on 7th October, 2017 (Saturday). We are glad to have Mr. Luk Kwok-lam, Senior Nursing Officer of Kwai Chung Hospital as the speaker of the workshop.
Mr. Luk introduced various types of common mental disorders, and briefly explained the respective causes, symptoms and treatment. Teens understood the importance of accepting Person-in-Recovery through different kinds of game.
The workshop also included a visit in Kwai Chung Hospital, for the students to have a clear picture of the facilities and service provision by a mental health hospital, as well as the daily routine of a patient before discharge. It debunked the myths about mental health hospital and the patients which mainly come from the media.
According to the post-workshop questionnaire, 97.4% of students agreed the workshop could help them know more about mental disorders. In addition, 93% of students were satisfied with the workshop.
