The Best Time for Ice cream is Always

Who will argue with that? In what might very well be a Hong Kong first, the Federation, with the support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, has launched InnoPower@JC: Ice-cream Healing Hub! What? Why?

Ice-cream is non-judgmental and is almost universally enjoyed by everyone, and is often experienced as something that can lift the mood. The Hub, under InnoPower@JC: Fellowship for Social Workers Programme, is to serve those families in which members have been diagnosed with various forms of mood and emotional disorders. 

In the Hub, ice-cream will be available in different flavours, each representing different emotions. Those who come will be encouraged to choose a flavour which best represents the emotion they'd like to achieve that day.

Coupled with a more serious multidisciplinary approach, using an early prevention and intervention model, we will work with clinics and hospitals for case referrals. A psychiatric team for conducting medical assessments and case support will also be available, as will a trained group of young community supporters who can provide assistance for the families. 

The Hub's purpose is to identify intergenerational transmissions of mood disorders and to provide necessary treatment. This will be carried out by a 4R service model which refers to Release, Resilient, Reconnect and Refine and encourages participants, both parents and children, to learn better ways to reduce emotional distress and strengthen parent-children relationships through playgroups and workshops. Academic support and developmental activities will also be provided to the children to ease the day-to-day burden of participating parents.

Ice-cream is really used as a 'prop' to release tension, change the mood and heal relationships. Initially, 40 families will join in these healing activities, where the ice-cream is free and where the senses of sight, taste and smell are used for good!

Support this wonderful and unique initiative. As the saying goes, "The best time for ice cream is always."
