Therapy is still a mystery to most of us seeking treatment. Have you ever wondered what happens in a therapy session? How does it work? Will it be suitable for you?

Therapy sessions can seem daunting, especially for first-timers, but knowing what to expect from the therapy can make it less stressful for you. Let’s hear from us and those with lived experiences.

Co-hosted by Mind HK’s More Than A Label and our Youth Wellbeing Practitioner (YWP) programme, the sharing event will feature an in-depth conversation covering all these questions you might have about going to therapy, along with our Mind HK ambassadors who will share their personal experiences and how therapy has helped them throughout their journey of recovery.

The Mind HK and MINDSET Youth Wellbeing Practitioner (YWP) programme is a youth mental health initiative designed and developed by Mind HK, aiming to make mental health support more accessible by training new therapists (YWPs) to provide free, evidence-based mental health support to young people between 12-24 in Hong Kong. We are pleased to announce that free mental health support sessions are now available online, for young people aged 18-24 to receive support from the comfort of their own. Tune in to the sharing to learn more about online therapy as a flexible, convenient alternative to in-person sessions.

Whether you are struggling to seek treatment for your mental health challenges or looking for ways to support your friends and families who are facing such challenges, you are welcome to join us in this sharing session to unlock all your mysteries about therapy, and as a guide to finding the treatment suitable for your needs.
