Mental Health Support and Care for All

No one would deny what an impact the persistent epidemic has had on the community. The area in which this was most acutely felt has no doubt been on the mental wellbeing of people. How do we address this troubling issue?
With support from the Mental Health Initiatives Funding Scheme initiated by the Health Bureau, the Federation is launching two projects, targeted at providing better mental health support to people in need in the community and raising public awareness of mental health.
The first is "Good Go Chat" Digital Supportive Scheme, a 24-month programme which aims to build up the self-awareness and knowledge on mental wellness among the elderly through digital platforms. In this programme, 100 youth will be trained to be community "Digital Connectors" to enhance IT support for the elderly and improve their digital literacy. An online social network will be created to bring the youth and elderly together through group chats and mini games, in order to assist the elderlies' social life as well through technology. 
The second programme focuses particularly on young carers through the Recharge Uself - Early Identification and Intervention for Young Carers Programme. Filling a service gap for youth aged 18 to 35 who take care of their family members, this programme includes identification and referral networks, a one-stop hub for screening, triaging and service referrals, guided self-help support, experiential healing workshops and more. It is expected that the participants will have better self-care competence and mental well-being after joining the programme, thus helping to alleviate their daily pressures and stress. 
Supporting young people to help themselves and others, that is what the Federation is committed to. Join us in this essential and often under-focused service. Together we can all make a difference.
