New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association
 A Brief Introduction to the Service

Provide long-term accommodation services that have a relatively higher degree of independence for people in recovery of mental illness

Provide individual counseling and supportive services
Equip residents with self-care skills and basic community living abilities
 



In an attempt to meet the diversified residential needs of people in recovery of mental illness, we established our first self-financed supported hostel - Jockey Club New Life Hostel at Kennedy Road in 1998 to supply accommodations at an affordable price, providing them with counseling services, living and social skills training to enhance their independent living ability.

Yuet Wo House at Tuen Mun commenced operation since July 2005, providing another long-term housing option for people discharged from Halfway Houses. This enabled them to receive care and support on a consistent basis. The Hostel is a three-storey building with single rooms which can accommodate 15 residents.

Another self-financed hostel - Yi Yuet Hin offers residential services to those who have already received basic community living skills training at Tuen Mun Long Stay Care Home but who are not yet able to live independently. The Hostel has commenced operation since September 2005. It provides support and care of medium to low level for residents. Consisting of 3 blocks of two-storey building located in Greenery Villa, Tuen Mun, the Hostel provides 17 rooms, including single, double and three-person rooms to accommodate 29 residents.
