More About The Service

Physical and mental health of a person depend on the environment. Youths face challenges in personal growth, peer relationship and life planning when they are growing up. They may not know how to manage themselves and seek help. Then they probably employ wrong methods to try to solve their issues or relieve their stress. Even adults may find it difficult to seek outside help when they face stress, due to their social identity or family status. They can only suppress themselves and handle the issues on their own – probably using drugs for a temporary relief. 

Obviously, anti-drug knowledge is an essential factor in preventing the risk of drug taking, but it is also important to care about the physical and mental needs of youths and other members of the community. If they get empowered, they can understand themselves and feel being understood. Thus, their negative emotions can be released in a healthy and appropriate way. Then they will develop a healthy lifestyle and become more determined in avoiding drugs. The project also provides opportunities for them to build up healthier families, schools and communities.

Existing Projects

Health Education Project in Secondary Schools

F1 to F6 students

The project provides a series of free talks and experiential activities. Focused on their growth and life challenges, the project equips students with healthy ways to relieve stress and social skills. It also provides them with correct knowledge of drugs and helps them to develop positive values. In this way, participants will be distanced from drugs, spirits and cigarettes as the protective factors for them can be enhanced.
