About Event

Mind HK is turning 5!

In celebration of their 5th anniversary and to support Hong Kong as its opens up and recovers from the pandemic years, we are hosting a fundraising drive to improve access to mental health support for all those in need in Hong Kong.

Around 1 in 5 in Hong Kong are experiencing a mental health problem.

Over 50% of respondents reported having poor mental well-being, according to the standards of the World Health Organisation (WHO – 5) Well-being Index. Only around 25% of those with a diagnosable condition in Hong Kong seek professional help. There is a clear shortage of accessible, low-cost, and professional services in tackling the rising demand for mental health help.

We are aiming to raise 2 million by December 16th 2022 to tackle this need.

All funds raised from this fundraising drive will go towards supporting our work in improving access to mental health services in Hong Kong, including our Improving Access to Community Therapies (iACT) initiative, which will involve training new therapists (Mind HK's well-being practitioners) to provide free or low-cost mental health support to individuals in need in Hong Kong. From similar interventions overseas, it was found that 50 - 70% achieve recovery status after treatment. We believe this programme will help create a sustainable, long-term solution to addressing mental health problems in Hong Kong.

  • 50,000 HKD = Will cover the training of one wellbeing practitioner, who will be qualified to provide free/low-cost evidence-based therapy interventions to those facing mild-moderate mental health problems in Hong Kong

For the past five years since its establishment in 2017 we have been making every effort to ensure that no one in Hong Kong has to face mental health problems alone. Since our inception, we have trained over 17,000 in mental health literacy, had over 1.5 million users visit its website for mental health support, and trained 50 wellbeing practitioners to provide free mental health support to young people.

Your donation, no matter the size, will make a difference and help us ensure no one in Hong Kong has to face a mental health problem alone.

Restaurant Week: Mind HK will be hosting Hong Kong's first-ever Mental Health Restaurant week from Oct 15 - 30; all money raised from this will go towards our 5th-anniversary fundraising drive. To learn more and take part, please visit
