Project Detail

An emotional wellness project for adolescents aged 12-24 who are concerned about their emotional health, having emotional fluctuations or emotionally high-risk.  The project will use Creative Arts, Music and Emotion Focused Therapy as the intervention methods to enhance adolescent emotional wellness and prevent mental disturbances.  It will integrate emotional health education and therapy into the Visual Arts subject of schools in order to create an emotionally friendly school environment; help adolescents perceive and express their emotions through song-writing courses in the community so as to foster their self-expression and self-compassion to cope with emotional distress; and enhance the public concern.
