On 1 March 2020, 12 HSBC colleagues from Hong Kong join 88 other HSBC colleagues from around the world to trek 100km through the high altitude volcano region in Ecuador. With no access to typical facilities, everyone will be carrying their own personal equipment and camping gear for 5 days, sleeping rough in the middle of nowhere, in order to raise money and awareness for mental health.
Colleagues from Hong Kong have chosen to partner with Mind HK, one of Hong Kong’s leading mental health charities, committed to improving awareness and understanding of mental health in the city
Donations will be made to Mind HK to raise awareness and understanding of mental health in Hong Kong. Let’s work together to show mental health matters and to ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
About Mind HK
Mind Hong Kong (Mind HK), a mental health initiative, ensures everyone in Hong Kong living with a mental health problem has the recognition, support and respect they need to make the best recovery possible. Through collaborations, innovation, and training, it facilitates the work of all those involved in improving mental health in Hong Kong.
1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in our lifetime. Mind HK's key mission is to destigmatise mental health and improve attitudes and awareness to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health challenge has access to the available services and resources in Hong Kong. To foster improvements in understanding, comprehensive, informational resources on a range of mental health topics and a service directory are available in English and Traditional Chinese on its website (www.mind.org.hk). Alongside this, a team of clinical professionals regularly deliver evidence-based training programmes, including Mental Health First Aid, to the public, companies, non-profits and schools. Mind HK carries out and shares research internationally, and regularly holds expert talks and campaigns with local and international non-profit organisations - all of which are in sight of breaking the stigma around mental health in Hong Kong.
