Did you know that 1.6 per cent of Hong Kong secondary students tried to take their own lives in the last academic year and 3.7 per cent considered it? According to the Hong Kong Department of Health, these statistics increased by 50 per cent since 2018-19. FIFTY PERCENT. This unfortunate reality underlines the urgent need for action.The mental health crisis is more prevalent than ever, which is why I have decided to donate my birthday to Mind HK in lieu of traditional presents. Mind HK is an organization dedicated to ensuring no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

"Hearty One" is a project created for a cocktail competition goes beyond just mixology. While celebrating the art of cocktail-making, Hearty One also places a strong emphasis on promoting well-being. It serves as a platform to initiate conversations and increase understanding about mental health issues within the bartending and hospitality industry. Moreover by raising funds for Mind HK, a mental health charity dedicated to building a supportive mental health community, to ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone in Hong Kong. More about Mind HK please visit -  https://www.mind.org.hk/ The World Health Organisation defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” However, in Hong Kong and globally, mental health is often misunderstood and not given equal importance in terms of prevention and treatment compared to physical illness. It is estimated that 1 in 7 people in Hong Kong will experience a common mental disorder at any given time, yet three-quarters of those individuals do not seek professional help. Many suffer in silence due to stigma, shame, lack of awareness about their condition, and limited access to professional support. Further statistics show that many environmental, personal and social stressors also contribute to mental health problems. The hospitality industry had been identified as one of most stressful sectors. In Hong Kong, this large community of approximately 260,000 people, who play a vital role in our local economy, often suffer silently. As a bartender, I have witnessed firsthand the challenges and pressures faced by individuals working in the hospitality industry. The long hours, demanding schedules, and high-stress environments can take a toll on our mental health.Working in bar or restaurant requires speed, organised thought, unwavering attention to details, creativity, extensive knowledge of products and safety, and a genuine passion for serving, It’s a lot to balance, and many of us have experienced increased levels of stress, anxiety, and burnout. The primary objective of this fundraising campaign is to raise funds for Mind HK and contribute to their mission of creating a mentally healthier community. Additionally, I aim to raise awareness about mental health, destigmatize the topic, and provide resources specifically for individuals within the hospitality industry who may be struggling. By improving overall well-being, we can create a healthier and more sustainable work environment for the dedicated individuals who contribute to the industry’s success. Please support Mind HK and Hearty One! Let’s work towards a future where mental health is given attention and resources it deserves.「Hearty One」是一個為雞尾酒比賽而創建的項目,但不僅如此。在頌揚調酒藝術的同時,Hearty One 亦強調促進福𧘲。它作為一個平台,引發調酒師與餐旅業中對心理健康問題的討論,並提高對它的了解。 此外,透過為 Mind HK 籌集資金 - 香港心聆是一所本地精神健康慈善機構,致力確保香港沒有人需要獨自面對精神健康問題。更多關於香港心聆詳見 -  https://www.mind.org.hk/ 世界衛生組織(WHO)將健康定義為「健康不僅爲疾病或羸弱之消除,而是體格, 精神與社會之完全健康狀態。」在香港以至全球,人們對精神健康仍有很多誤解。不論在預防及治療方面,精神健康並沒有像身體健康一樣受到重視。每七位香港人就有一位在一生中會經歷常見的心理疾病。然而,在這些正經歷精神健康問題的人中,七成半的人並不會尋求專業協助。於受到污名化問題、感到羞愧、對自身情況不了解,及缺乏專業支援的情況下,許多人將會繼續面對被孤立的問題。很多數據亦顯示環境、個人以及社會壓力會造成精神健康問題。 餐旅業被認為是壓力最大的行業之一。 在香港,這個擁有約 260,000 人組成的龐大社群,在推動本地經濟發展中發揮著重要作用,每每工作壓力再大 - 卻默默習已為常。 身為調酒師,對餐旅業人員面臨的挑戰和壓力亦歷歷在目。 長時間的工作、嚴格的日程安排和高壓力的環境都會損害我們的心理健康。 在酒吧或餐廳工作需要迅速、有組織的思考、對細節的持久關注、創造力、對產品和安全的廣泛知識以及對服務的熱情,當中講求平衡的非常多。我們中之許多人都經歷過不同程度的壓力、焦慮已及倦怠。此籌款活動的主要目標是為Mind HK籌集資金,為他們創建心理健康社區的使命做出貢獻。此外,藉此提高大家對心理健康的認識,消除社會對此話題的污名化,並為餐旅業內可能遇到困難的人提供資源。通過改善整體福祉,我們可以為餐旅業的成功做出貢獻的敬業人士創造一個更健康、更可持續的工作環境。 請支持Mind HK及Hearty One,共同實現一個心理健康得到應有關注和資源的未來。

Despite the fact that men have a lower rate of depression, their suicide rates surpass those of women. Studies have proven men experience situational depression more frequently, and if left untreated, it can lead to deeper depression, anxiety, and suicide.We have been taught to be unconditionally tough both physically and emotionally in the established way - any display of emotions has been considered as a sign of incompetence or not being 'man' enough. Throughout history, barriers have been built against men to seek help.I would like to help break down these walls for everyone, especially men in Hong Kong, by initiating a fundraising campaign for Mind HK. Hoping that supporting local charity can spread awareness about mental well-being in Hong Kong and encourage men to prioritize self-care.儘管事實上男性罹患憂鬱症的比率較低,但自殺率卻遠超女性。研究表明,男性更常經歷情境性憂鬱,如果不及時治療,可能導致更深層的憂鬱、焦慮,甚至自殺。傳統觀念上,男性被教導要無條件地堅強。任何情感的表達都被視為無能,以致一直以來男性尋求幫助亦非易事。我希望透過為香港心聆(Mind HK)發起籌款活動,支持香港心聆在港推廣有關心理健康的意識,鼓勵男士重視自身情緒和精神健康。為所有人,尤其香港男性打破現存障礙。

Hello everyone. I am so excited to share that I will be taking on the 100km Sahara challenge in October this year. I am a Hong Kong-based counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist working towards my doctorate in psychology. I am deeply passionate about researching the benefits of self-care and how it can positively impact our lives. For me, exercise has always been a powerful self-care tool and one of the most effective strategies I use to help me decompress and gain clarity when I am stressed or struggling with a problematic personal, academic or professional issue. This challenge is a chance for me to take a short break from my work and studies and raise money and awareness for a deserving charity.I am fortunate to work with a diverse population of clients from many different cultures and with a wide range of presenting problems. While the global stigma attached to mental health is slowly reducing, we still have a long way to go, particularly in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia. Therefore, I have chosen to run for Mind HK. This organisation has been instrumental in raising mental health awareness and providing education to change attitudes towards those facing mental health challenges, and promoting the understanding, acceptance and accessibility of different treatment inventions. I am asking for your support in this vital cause. Your donation, no matter how small, will make a difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health challenges. Thank you for your generosity and for joining me on this scorching hot, long and sandy adventure!Many thanks,Claire x

My walkTo complete Mind HK's challenge to cover 30km in nature this March, I will be walking a beautiful, not-too-hilly 30km route on Lantau (see map) with friends on 19th March 2023. We'll start at Tung Chung and end up with a celebratory plate of chips in Mui Wo. The aim is to provide living (hiking) proof of the benefits of physical exercise for mental health, and to raise money for a significant new programme by Mind HK called iACT, which will provide free mental health support to low-income youth in Hong Kong.I've always thought one of the best times to talk is on a walk, when the body is occupied and no eye contact is required. Recruits to our Lantau walk are very welcome and we promise a safe space for talking and listening. The longer I am involved with conversations about mental health, the more I see the extent to which mental health trials touch everyone's lives. It's a great privilege to have been part of Mind HK for almost five years, and I am particularly proud to belong to the board now that the charity's iACT programme is about to greatly expand access to low-cost mental health support in Hong Kong. Thank you so much in advance for your support for me, this walk and Mind HK's work!

Mind HK

Mind is such a abstract thing - difficult to understand as we cannot “open” it to fix or hold it in our physical hands to heal it. During the pandemic lockdown, I have been blessed for working in a great company where I have the luxury of working from home; while many others needed to work in person to support the family living due to the line of business they work in. On one fine evening in mid-Sept 2020 while I was doing my virtual calls, I witnessed a man jumped off the building across the road from mine and ended his life before my eyes on the podium…. I was in shock for 2 days where I kept asking “what can I do more”. I was so grateful to have access to assistant program where I was able to talk to some counselor on my experience. Hence, I have been focused on pinging people randomly to check in and say hello… but what can I do more? During my catch-up dinner with a friend, she shared with me about this event and I believe this is my calling to participate and be able to do a little more and to help raise awareness about those who maybe suffering silently around us. XOXO Fatz My ask to you: please sponsor me on this event where the raised funds go to Mind.org.hk who focuses on people’s mental health. Thank you.

Move It for Mental Health 2023Now in its 6th consecutive year, Move It for Mental Health is Mind HK’s annual campaign to raise awareness of the link between physical exercise and mental health and encourage everyone to develop a healthy lifestyle. This year’s challenge is to complete 30km in nature.The money raised for Move It for Mental Health 2023 will go directly to providing free mental health support to low-income youth through Mind HK’s iACT programme, which provides a sustainable, long-term solution to address the mental health crisis of long waiting times and unaffordable treatment in Hong Kong. Similar programmes overseas show that up to 70% of those who receive this type of therapy require no further treatment. Adolescents are just the start of Mind HK’s wellbeing practitioner series, which will expand to target other vulnerable populations in the years to come. HK is a stressful city to live, study and work in - the need for iACT is deeply felt across all sectors of society. To support this campaign, I will be completing my 30km in nature on 18th March 2023 (Saturday) together with my friends and other Mind HK staff/board members. I will be doing my favourite route from Tung Chung to Mui Wo on Lantau Island (see photo for details). I hope you will support me and this cause which is close to my heart by donating or taking part in the challenge with me on the day! No running, just walking (I promise), with options to leave the route at shorter distances and ending with a meal of course! I hope it will be a safe space to talk about all things wellbeing, to help us recharge together and feel uplifted physically and mentally. How Exercise Has Helped MeI discovered the joy of exercising outdoors when I started training for trail races last year. Being on the trails brings mental clarity and makes me feel calm and free, away from noise, traffic and heavy crowds. Leaving distractions (my precious internet connection) behind and being in a remote location accessible only by a one-hour ferry ride teaches commitment and perseverance - there is no turning back, no stop button you can push on a treadmill. You start to notice more of your surroundings - the sounds of your footfall and the crunching of the leaves, the breeze and sunshine and sweat on your skin, the birds flying overhead and the waves crashing beside you. When you’re surrounded by beautiful views on top of a mountain, you’re reminded of how insignificant we are on this earth and how grateful we can be for it.My history with running has been a long and life-changing one. Exercise has been a lifeboat, a coping mechanism I used during a very difficult period in my teenage years. It gave me a way to directly confront my negative thoughts through action, a tool to rediscover what I am capable of. On days when I barely wanted to get out of bed, running gave me a reason to leave my house and provided structure and predictability in contrast to the chaos inside my head: I knew what to expect when running, and I knew I would be okay. Pushing through discomfort showed me that all pain, physical or mental, does not last forever. To this day, whenever I start to feel my mental health deteriorate, I can trust that after a few runs, I will inevitably start feeling like myself again. I find it hard to relax by sitting still; movement is my meditation and helps me appreciate being alive.Although I have received a lot of support for my condition - kindness and understanding from friends and family, access to therapy, doctors, and medication - it wasn’t until running showed me I could start believing in myself again that I was able to shift my perspective and regain hope and confidence. As exercise showed me what my body was capable of, I realized it needs to be looked after, not punished. On days when I don’t feel as well and run less or slower than I anticipated, I no longer beat myself up for it but feel proud that I tried. I’ve learned to be adaptable and less rigid and more loving to myself.I used to be intimidated by runners until I became one myself, gradually overcoming my doubts, finding a rhythm, and building up the distance from 5k to an ultramarathon. Something magical happens when you start running - it connects you to the world around you. I was very withdrawn when I was in the midst of depression and lost interest in pretty much everything. Life is way too hard to figure out on our own, but we can achieve our goals in a community. Running gave me the opportunity and courage to interact with others, to laugh and bond over shared setbacks and triumphs.  How I Joined Mind HK: My Story I first joined Mind Hong Kong in October 2018 whilst taking a leave of absence from university. At the time, my mental health had spiralled and I was fortunate enough to receive amazing support from my doctors and professionals. Yet I knew that not everyone had access to care in Hong Kong due to limited public resources, financial constraints, stigma and a lack of understanding, among others. This weighed heavily on the back of my mind and I felt sad, even a little bit guilty, to receive so much help. I had a privileged upbringing, a loving family, great friends, and good grades in a professional degree that promised stability and security - but still found myself in a very dark place. If I was in so much turmoil about recovery with all these wonderful sources of support laid out in front of me, how much harder could it be for someone who has to jump through multiple obstacles to access even one of those sources? Knowing firsthand how cruel the mind can be, I certainly didn’t feel like I deserved to recover any more than the other 1 in 7 in HK finding themselves in a similar situation. I wanted to be able to do something to improve this disparity with the free time I was suddenly faced with, and Mind HK (then just one year old!) took me on as a volunteer. In the beginning, I didn’t know how to revisit traumatic memories, much less talk about them. Guided by the team’s sagacity, sensitivity and understanding of mental health, I shared my journey publicly for the first time at the 2018 Mind HK Media Awards. I didn’t expect it to make much of an impact. But what followed showed me how opening up can bring knowledge, understanding and compassion to people who have not walked in your shoes. It can bring hope to those who are going through the hardest period of their lives and make them feel less alone, a reminder that they matter and their stories are worth being listened to. After witnessing the power of lived experience, I was offered an opportunity to work on Coolminds, Mind HK’s youth mental health initiative with KELY Support Group, in 2019, a role I maintained after my return to university. By helping other young adults view or manage their own mental health in a more positive way, I was able to find myself again - my sense of purpose and my vision of a better future. The community I was helping to build became an indispensable part of my own recovery, providing me with the advice and encouragement I needed to hear, enabling me to make sense of my own thoughts and beliefs, giving me confidence that I could pursue goals that mattered to me.  In 2021, I left my job at Mind HK to focus on my full-time studies, but was invited to join as a Board Member. It has been one of the biggest privileges of my life to remain involved with an organisation that has not only contributed so much to mental health across the city, but has also impacted and supported me on a personal level. I would not be in the place I am today if it weren’t for the people at Mind HK who demonstrated such strong dedication to their mission of making sure no one faces a mental health problem alone, whilst modelling healthy practices to maintain and prioritise wellbeing. When we have good mental health, we are able to look after ourselves and engage with the things we care about. Last year, Mind HK launched their iACT (Improving Access to Community Therapies) programme, training fifty Youth Wellbeing Practitioners to deliver free psychological interventions to youth aged 12-24 experiencing mild to moderate mental health problems. These practitioners have been placed in community settings such as schools, universities, clinics, NGOs and have even delivered online sessions to reach youth in need. Seeing iACT launch after several years of planning and development reminds me of the inequality I felt compelled to address when I first joined Mind HK as a volunteer. By supporting individuals at one of their lowest points and empowering them to learn to manage unpleasant or painful thoughts and feelings, iACT bridges an essential gap in the provision of mental health services. It brings me so much joy and excitement to know that other lives are being transformed, as mine has, by learning coping strategies to live a rich and meaningful life.To read more about iACT: https://iact.hk/To sign up for Move It for Mental Health 2023: https://run2gather.com/new-events/move-it-for-mental-health-2023

My personal struggle with mental health growing up was transformed when I started exploring fitness and activity at a much later stage in life. Mental health struggles are personal and relative to each individual. However, the one thing that ties them all together is a need for supportive practices and compassionate people. In my tiny way, I hope to give the same way that so many in my life have given to me. Hope you can be a part of this journey too.

Regular physical activity has been well-proven to enhance our well-being and prevent and reduce mental health symptoms in all age groups. Recent studies show that immersing ourselves in nature benefits physical and psychological health. When it comes to our mental health, being in nature significantly enhances people’s positive emotional state, attitude and stress coping and alleviates anxiety and depression. Therefore, we encourage everyone to walk, jog, or run in nature during March to kick-start a healthy 2023.
