Our Programme

What we have planned

The Hong Kong Mental Health Conference, on November 6 and 7 2020, will feature local and international speakers in the field of mental health sharing their expertise in youth mental health. The event will be held in an online and physical format (should restrictions allow). Clinical professionals, educators, NGO staff, social service, school administrators, students and those interested in youth mental health are welcome to join.

The Hong Kong Youth Summit will take place on November 8 and will be open to adolescents, young adults, and parents. With the theme “Resilience: Supporting each other and ourselves” the summit seeks to engage youth through interactive workshops, panel discussions, stories of lived experience, and more, in an online and in-person format.
