Youth mental wellness is indispensable for whole-person development. The deteriorating emotional competence and resilience of young people in Hong Kong has brought light to the alarming issue of the mental well-being of youth.
SHKP “Art to Heart” is a school-based Expressive Arts program led by Registered Arts (Expressive Arts) Therapist. By introducing different art modalities such as painting, dancing/ body movement, music/ sound and drama etc., participants will experience some brand new channels to scrutinize, express and manage their emotions.
Through educational talks, experiential workshops and therapeutic intervention, participants can convey their emotions with Expressive Arts at a relaxing and safe environment, and learn to lay down their self-defenses. The experiences also help unleash their personal strengths to achieve self-healing.
