Partnering with EDB to Promote Mental Health in Schools


The Integrated Centre for Wellbeing at The Education University of Hong Kong has been awarded a HK$10 million government contract to run two-year mental health programmes for Hong Kong schools commencing this September. This includes elementary and in-depth courses for around 2,000 teachers.

The elementary course will introduce teachers to the Education Bureau’s (EDB) Healthy School Policy and to strategies that promote student well-being and resilience. The course aims to train school staff to help students with mental health needs to develop a positive attitude.

The advanced course will train teachers in practices that promote mental health in schools and support students with mental health needs.
