Hong Kong has been going through some very turbulent times, starting with the social unrest in 2019, to COVID-19 for much of 2020. This has taken a toll on many- Hong Kong people’s mental health index has dipped to 45.12, down from 46.41 in 2019. Scoring below 52 indicates an unsatisfactory psychological state. Seeing as COVID has no clear signs of firmly abating in the near future/until a vaccine becomes widespread, what can Hong Kong people do to cope during these stressful times, and what resources are available to them within the community? 

Join Impact Circles (together with HeartChat 聊心) this December for an in-depth and insightful look into the state of the most pressing mental health and well-being issues in Hong Kong. Hear from clinical psychologists, mental health advocates, and corporate trainers on ways to seek help. Attendees will also have a chance to participate in smaller groups led by professional psychologists, counsellors, therapists, coaches, social workers and corporate trainers to hear insights and get expert advice.

During this conference, we will hear from the city's brightest mental health and personal development professionals, on best practices for understanding and coping with the multitude of uncertainties as we all try to move forward. Some questions and points we will pose:

  • Mindfulness and effectiveness in the workplace; adopting a growth mindset
  • How to best cope, from a mental health standpoint, as we enter a new “normal” in society
  • How can team leads and senior managers work more effectively with their teams and support one another?
  • Adjusting to change and maintaining continuity for team leads and senior managers
  • Integrating corporate and wellness, and building resilience before stresses in the external environment dramatically worsen?
  • Effective and supportive parenting; positive psychology
  • Treating your breath as a skill to leverage and benefit from
  • Leveraging technology to help your mental and physical health
  • Promote accessible, transparent circulation of professional knowledge and insights on mental well-being from experts in the relevant fields, so as to reduce information gap in the mental well-being field
