Description:

Mental health is a key element contributing to fruitful university life of students. With the onslaught of lingering pandemic, the academic, interpersonal and emotional challenges faced by our students are getting more complicated and severe which take a heavy toll on the mental wellness of our students. 

Promoting and safeguarding the mental health of our students calls for the joint effort of all university staff. In light of this, we have invited Dr Phyllis CHAN Kwok Ling, Vice-President of the Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists to deliver a talk to faculty, staff and students. The talk would focus on how gatekeepers can safeguard the mental health of students.  Dr Chan will introduce relevant symptoms of psychiatric problems and how early intervention can be achieved.  The enhancement of emotional awareness and self-care of gatekeepers will also be covered.
