Expressive Arts Workshop: Understanding Yourself
Have you ever resonated with a song that you heard? Or watching a movie or drama that resembles your self-portrayal? Or come across any scenic views or images that make you have special feelings that you could never forget?
Assimilate your creation into arts, it can become your mirror to help you understand yourself.
The workshop aims to enhance self-understanding of participants, including their strengths, insights and passions via the creative process and elements of visual arts and drama. Students can explore themselves through this self-exploration process while enjoy the fun through creation of an art piece.

To raise awareness on suicide prevention, the Wellness and Counselling Centre, Office of Student Affairs will join in to support the World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), a worldwide event on every September 10th promoted by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP). A series of activities will be specially arranged which include:
- Educational booths promoting suicide prevention messages set up on September 7 & 8 at Cultural Square (12nn-2pm). Students can take Polaroid photos to share their own pro-life messages and post them onto Facebook or Weibo.
- Wristbands & pamphlets distribution, on September 8 at University MTR Station (outside of Exit A, 10am-12nn & 4-6pm) also at SRRH (11am-1pm). A set of specially designed wristbands printed with WSPD’s theme of the year “Take a minute, change a life” will be delivered to students to encourage their active engagement as gatekeepers to support peers with emotional distress.
The hotline service is operated by trained counsellors from Christian Family Service Centre which offers telephone counselling and crisis interventions. Our service would follow up on the students in need of psychological counselling.
