About Us
Living in a prosperous yet fast-paced city, we are all facing different challenges and stress. It is common for us to come across stressful situations at work, at home or while interacting with people in our daily lives. These stress accumulating to add burden to our physical and mental health, and therefore, learning about how we all can take care of our physical and mental health needs become essential for our city dwellers to face the challenges in daily lives.
Still, we are all always troubled by the fact that the stress keep accumulating and that we do not seem to have effective ways to manage stress and boost our mental health .
Having mental distress is not uncommon in Hong Kong; research has found that, 1 in every 7 people in Hong Kong is affected by depression or anxiety disorder. However, mental health is not merely about the absence of mental illness, it is but also about realizing our own strengths, managing stress in daily lives, leading a fruitful life and contributing to the community. According to World Health Organization, mental health is an important state of health and that there is no health without mental health.
