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 Yu Chun Keung Memorial College on 5th March, 2016 (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, Dr. So guided the participants to think about differences to identify people with depression and helping them. In the demonstration session, selected teens were requested to dance in front to the mass, and later on they were asked the level of anxiety and symptoms from body and mind. Through the experimental learning, Teens gained insights on handling anxiety, as well as the methods of encouraging others to overcome them.
According to the post-workshop questionnaire, 99.1% of students agreed the workshop could help them know more about mental disorders, and 95.4% of students satisfied with the workshop.
