Back-to-school supports for youth on campus and beyond

The new school year implies a new challenge for students. While this summer has been filled with unceasing social unrest, are youth ready to return to regular school life? How can we help?

Fully understanding that the current context in Hong Kong can create upset, particularly to younger students, who may not know how to process the scenes they are viewing or the information they are receiving, the Federation encourages schools to create with love and wisdom a safe and calm "Wellness Space". We believe that students need to be able to deal with what is happening and focus on the positive. We have therefore prepared a healing kit for distribution to schools, which consists of publications and notebooks on emotional management, and hotline and greeting cards. School talks, workshops and theatres on emotional management, bullying and media literacy will be arranged. 

We will also be providing support in the communities. A brand new Youth Wellness Chinese Medicine Scheme will be launched and the existing Youth Wellness Psychiatric Service Scheme will be optimized. Wellness consultations will be provided at the five HKFYG's Youth SPOTs. Youth facing family conflicts can find a temporary shelter at our WL Residence. Mediation services will be provided by our Parent Support Network for families in need. Certainly, the Moving Wellness Truck will continue to go round Hong Kong to provide a relaxing space. 

All of these cannot happen without the generous contribution of funders and volunteers. Call Brenda Yip, tel 3755 7101, if you would like to play a role too.
