Dear Parents and Guardians
Coolminds is a joint initiative between Mind HK and KELY Support Group, and promotes mental health awareness, support and understanding in Hong Kong’s youth. Coolminds aims to provide comprehensive programmes for the prevention, early intervention and management of youth mental health. Their Mission Statement is – ‘Our mission is to educate and empower young people to look after themselves and those around them’.
The Coolminds team provides parents (as well as teachers and students) access to high quality mental health information and support. At Sha Tin College, we have integrated into our Year 10 Science of Wellbeing materials produced by Coolminds which address the academic stress that may occur as students transition back to on-campus classes. These resources include Hong Kong youth sharing their own experiences with this topic.
We encourage you to participate in the ‘Youth Mental Health Webinar for Parents’ and hope you find it informative and relevant.
