Workshop 2: Depression & Anxiety
In order to equip the Teens with indepth knowledge of various mental illness, Health in Mind Programme organized the “Depression & Anxiety” workshop at Hong Kong Taoist Association The Yuen Yuen Institute No.3 Secondary School on 11th March, 2017 (Saturday). We are glad to have Dr. Cheryl So, Senior Clinical Psychologist of Kwai Chung Hospital to be the guest speaker, to share her experience in working for patients with depression and anxiety.
Through games, video clips and group discussion, the Teens were taught to identify people with symptoms of depression, and different ways to help taking care of them. As a demonstration, a few teens were selected to dance in front to the mass, and later on they were being asked the anxiety responses from body and mind. Through this experiential learning, Teens gained insights on handling anxiety, as well as the methods of encouraging others to minimize.
According to the post-workshop questionnaire, 94.4% of students agreed that the workshop could help them know more about depression and anxiety, and 92.2% of students were satisfied with the workshop.
