Mental Health Tips

How to achieve mental health and overcome mental illness?

Stress Management

Anger management

How to deal with anger?

Anger is one of human’s emotions. It has its values and functions. It motivates us to protect ourselves and to fight for our rights. However, if anger is not properly managed, it may lead to some physical and psychological problems. Therefore, it would be beneficial for us and for people around us to learn how to manage anger.


Positive Psychology

The more developed a society, the more intense feelings of loss and unhappiness within an individual. Developed society like the United States, rates of depression are ten times higher today than they were in the 1960’s. The average age for onset of depression also turns much younger. So, what can we do to make ourselves happier ? This is one of the reasons why “Positive Psychology” is receiving more and more attention in the recent years.


Insomnia

Insomnia is a common problem in the society. A good sleep helps to restore our energy and cognitive function.


Overcoming grief and bereavement

Though death is an essential experience in life, facing the death of our loved ones inevitably brings emotional distress. Generally speaking, a normal bereavement does not require intervention by professional parties, but in some cases it may turn out to be a psychiatric disorder.

Up to 100 scholarship offers would be made per cohort. All awardees will receive a non-means-tested scholarship to cover their tuition fees, subject to a ceiling of HK$300,000 per annum, whichever is lower. In addition, a means-tested bursary will be granted to students who may need additional support to pursue their study, subject to a ceiling of HK$200,000 per student per annum, for covering living and other study-related expenses.

進食失調症是一個複雜且可致命的心理疾病,並非如坊間所認為只是「食同唔食」及「自己攞黎」那麼簡單。這是一個關於個人成長、自信心建立、家庭關係、壓力處理等等問題的痛苦秘密,當中由情緒困擾衍生出的失控及無助感,加上社會上的種種誤解,令到許多患者及其家人將痛苦越藏越深,以致錯失了不少接受治療的機會。

為破除社會上對進食失調症的誤解,提升各界對進食失調症的認識和關注,香港進食失調康復會將舉辦一連串的義工訓練與推廣活動。受訓之義工將成為「健康推廣大使」,參與大專及社區推廣活動。義工更可按自己的興趣,加入不同的義工小組 (如會訊出版及展覽宣傳等),以接受進階義工訓練,以知識打破大眾對此病症的誤解,讓更多潛藏在社區內有需要的人士得到支援。

有興趣成為「健康推廣大使」的同學 ,請於2021年4月15日前填寫網上報名表格,或以傳真、電郵方式遞交*,香港進食失調康復會將以電郵確認報名情況。

鑑於新型冠狀病毒疫情發展狀況未能預計,活動有可能會因應情況作出改動,最新消息會以電郵方式通知。如有查詢,請致電2144-5757或透過電郵 (yvonneliang@heda-hk.org) 與梁小姐(Yvonne)聯絡。
