Community Support Services

Service Introduction

New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association pioneered the first Integrated Community Centre for Mental Wellness, The Wellness Centre (TWC) at Tin Shui Wai in 2009. From October 2010 onwards, service points extended to Sham Shui Po, Yau Tsim Mong, Sha Tin, Kwai Chung, Tuen Mun and Islands Districts, serving more than 6,400 members a year in these 7 centers. One-stop, district-based and integrated community support services are provided by social workers, occupational therapists, nurses, mental health education officer and program workers.

 

Our Aims

  • Providing one-stop, comprehensive and recovery-oriented community support services to local residents, assistance and follow-up services for people with suspected mental health problems as well as support for people in recovery of mental illness, their families and carers;
  • Initiating public education in promoting social inclusion, harmony and well-being in neighborhood;
  • Promoting the message of “instilling hope for better life” through various services.

 

Milestone

Integrated Community Centres for Mental Wellness have been set up in 18 districts in Hong Kong. The Wellness Centre (Tin Shui Wai), which commenced service in March 2009, was the first centre operated by the Association. The other centres operated by the Association were opened in October 2010 for the residents of Sham Shui Po, Yau Tsim Mong, Sha Tin, Kwai Chung, Tuen Mun and Islands Districts.
