HKFWS reaches youngsters in their campuses. With the aim of "strengthening families", we provide professional counselling service to nurture youngsters’ holistic development. Stepping into the Generation Z, youngsters indulge in internet, which creates family conflicts and parenting problems. Our social workers help youngsters facilitate their communications with parents and relieve family tension to promote mutual respect and understanding among family members.

Mental Health

When I saw video clips or news related to accident on social media, I experienced mood swings or even suffered from insomnia, what should I do?

When you see accident-related clips or news on social media, you may be emotionally affected and experience different degrees of "abnormal" reactions, such as panic, anxiety, headache, self-blame, loss of appetite, etc. These are all common reactions.


We encourage you try to live as usual:

(1) Do regular exercise with relaxation exercises can help alleviate sleep problems

(2) Take enough rest

(3) Try to maintain a balanced lifestyle and regular diet

(4) Talk to others and share your thoughts

(5) Avoid illustrating the accident with details during conversation


If you feel depressed continuously for several weeks, you may seek professional help from a social worker.
