Impact Circles x HeartChat : Mental Health Virtual Conference 2020

Impact Circles HK X Heart Chat : Mental Health Virtual Conference 2020
Join the upcoming mental health virtual conference “The Next Paradigm Shift: Workplace Resilience under the New Normal organised by Impact Circles and heartChat.
Hong Kong has been going through some very turbulent times, starting with the social unrest in 2019, to COVID-19 for much of 2020. This has taken a toll on many- Hong Kong people’s mental health index has dipped to 45.12, down from 46.41 in 2019. Scoring below 52 indicates an unsatisfactory psychological state. Seeing as COVID has no clear signs of firmly abating in the near future/until a vaccine becomes widespread, what can Hong Kong people do to cope during these stressful times, and what resources are available to them within the community? What are corporations in Hong Kong doing to help their employees cope?
Join Impact Circles (together with HeartChat 聊心) this December for an in-depth and insightful look into the state of the most pressing mental health and well-being issues in Hong Kong. Hear from clinical psychologists, mental health advocates, and corporate trainers on ways to seek help. Attendees will also have a chance to participate in smaller groups led by professional psychologists, counsellors, therapists, coaches, social workers and corporate trainers to hear insights and get expert advice.
