In face of the Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia (NCP), aside from preventing the disease, we also need to look after the mental wellness of ourselves and people around us. In this epidemic situation, it is normal for us to feel fear or anxiety. To support the mental wellness of our staff during this traumatic period, the Human Resources Section would like to share with you the arrangements for Staff Mental Health & Development Consultation Service and Referral Programme.

Our staff psychologists are here offering mental health and development consultation. They are more than happy to listen and to share what you are most concerned about in order to improve your lives. For consultation appointment, please refer to the following details:
