    Story

    "HK Well" is a newly formed voluntary-based group, aiming to respond to the emerging mental health issues among new Kong arrivals in the UK and provide therapeutic help for people in their native language, i.e. Cantonese.

    All therapists/psychologists have had years of experience in their professional practices in Hong Kong, and in the UK. They are willing to offer their time and expertise to assist children and young people who are suffering from mental health issues caused by the social movement in the past years.

    “Mental Health Matters” research has shown that as much as 39% of all primary and secondary students may be showing symptoms of mental health disorders. Youth suicidal rate has been increasing, yet very few actively seek mental health care. (Sept 2020)

    No doubt, their stress, and mental health disorders are likely to be manifested when they move to and settle in a new country in recent months. A mum from Hong Kong who moved to the UK with her family of 4 last autumn shared with us that, her son who was 10 was spotted with PTSD behaviour by the school wellbeing officer.

    Though we are in the process to apply for government funding, we will not charge fees at present. Therefore, your donation will be much appreciated to keep maintaining the voluntary based online pre-screening sessions in operation, thus reaching out to the wider and fast-growing Cantonese-speaking community in London and other cities.

    Should you have any queries and would like to know more about our free services on mental wellbeing in Cantonese, please contact us on: wearehkwell@gmail.com

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
