'Youth Co:Lab Hong Kong Dialogue 2021 – Hong Kong Youth's wellbeing and health'

 

How many nights have you been suffering from an unsettled mind, feeling your sweating palms and the anxiety?

How many times have you been hearing coughing sounds and nervously running around with fears in your heart?

How many moments have you been feeling sad about parting and leaving?

Try to ask yourself, "How am I doing?”

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service will organise the programme "Hong Kong Dialogue" for the young people in Hong Kong this winter.

3 sharing sessions x 6 experiential workshops will bring you back to the present moment, allow you to concentrate on your own senses, connect you to the inner self and make you the listener of each other’s heart.

                                                                              

Come and walk with us! Stay tuned for updates:)

Youth mental health and wellbeing has always been a great concern to many. Amidst great changes in our society in recent years, the situation is becoming more serious. In addressing the current challenges for youth mental health, to what extent does the widely adopted framework of risk and protective factors help? Relevant findings from two recent studies would be shared and hopefully shed some lights on the future services.

Time︰10:00am – 1:00pm

Format︰Online seminar

Quota:100(First Come First Serve)

Language:Cantonese (Simultaneous interpretation in English will be provided)
 

Facilitaor: 
Mr. WONG Kin Wai, Anthony(Business Director, HKCSS)

Speaker︰
Prof. Eric Chen (Chair Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Hong Kong )

Presentation Topic︰Youth mental health in times of change

This talk is based on recent data on risk and protective factors in youth mental health in Hong Kong based on an interim analysis of an epidemiological survey. Selective aspects of the impacts of   past adversity, personal psychological factors, personality, family and social network, experience of stress on distress and symptom dimensions will be discussed. Based on these findings, some innovative platforms for engagement and preventative intervention will be discussed.

Dr. To Siu Ming (Associate Professor, Department of Social Work, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)

Presentation Topic︰Effects of Stress Arising from Political Life Events on Hong Kong Adolescents’ Mental Health and Well-being: How about the Roles of Individual, Interpersonal, and Community Protective Factors?

Until now, we have known little about the effects of stress arising from political life events on Hong Kong adolescents’ mental health and well-being. This research is thus a pioneering attempt to investigate the influence of intrapersonal, interpersonal, and community protective factors on adolescents’ mental distress and life satisfaction in the current sociopolitical environment. A socio-ecological perspective was adopted to examine the moderating effects of resilience, social support, and youth empowerment in the community on the relationship between adolescents’ stress arising from political life events and their well-being. A mixed-methods approach involving cross-sectional surveys for both young people in schooling and not in schooling, and post-survey focus groups were undertaken in this study. The findings can help social workers and related helping professionals to reflect on how to support young people in the current sociopolitical environment.
