Mental Health
 

The University is committed to promoting the mental well-being of its students. The Student Affairs Office works closely with students, faculty and staff in mental health promotion and education as well as nurturing a spirit of caring within our campus community.

Throughout the academic year, Mental Health Promotion and Education Activities such as exhibitions, workshops, classes and train-the-trainer program are organized for students.

We work on improving the outreach efforts and preventive measures by developing a Caring Network of Peer Counselors including teaching assistants, hall tutor and staff. Peer Counselors, who devote themselves to promoting the spirit of care among students in campus, are trained to enhance their basic helping skills, understanding of mental health knowledge, emotional management and interpersonal relationships.

We develop the Student Mental Health Guideline for Staff/Faculty for distribution to schools, departments and supporting units. The guideline contains information on a broad spectrum of conditions, from mental wellbeing to mental health difficulties or illnesses. It aims to heighten awareness and extend knowledge of psychological health among faculty/staff members, enabling them to adopt appropriate measures should they identify any students facing such problems.
