Wun Kwan YAM (PHYS Year 2), Yatin GUPTA (SBM Year 2) Daniel CHUNG (SBM Year 2), Angel Dianne Kirsty TOMAS (SBM Year 2), and Kshitij VERMA (CSE UG Year 3)
A caring group of UG students was awarded as one of the ten groups for the WeCare Fund 2017 for Student-Initiated Youth Suicide Prevention Projects from the HKU Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention. With the support and guidance from the Counseling and Wellness Center, their project 'Other Ways Out' aims at promoting mental health awareness, facilitating peer-helping and mutual support among students, and providing gate-keeping for suicide prevention. They will launch their project with four initiatives in this Fall Term: Mental Health and Helping Skills Training, "Talk in the Dark" helping sessions, Chat App for students to reach out for emotional support, and social media promotion.
