Smiley Activation Project – Emotional Health Support Service

Introduction

The mental wellbeing of elderly has long been a main concern of our society. Since 2015, ‘Smiley Activation Project’ (SAP) aimed at providing supportive service to improve emotional wellbeing for those elders suffering from depressive mood. With 2-year sponsorship of Mental Health Initiatives Funding Scheme starting from April 2022, our project has been renamed as ‘Smiley Activation Project – Emotional Health Support Service’, serving users aged 50 or above in need of emotional support and their carers.

Objectives
