  • HOP


    Honest Open Proud (HOP)

    Origin from the United States, the "Honest, Open, Proud” was established by persons experienced with mental illness. Through the thinking process on whether disclosing own experience and expressing own stories strategically, the PIR learned to control their own experience and helped them to reduce the shameful feeling because of hiding their own story. The Association was authorized by Program Director, Mr. Patrick Corrigan, to translate and localize the Honest Open Program. The localized version was produced to match local needs with local examples.

    The Association invited the senior facilitators, Dr. Jonathon E. Larson to provide training to our staff in 2017. The trained facilitators have started to conduct the HOP programs to enhance service users’ confidence and skills of disclosure as well as to reduce self-stigmatization since 2018.

    The program is mainly divided into three parts, the participants start from understanding their own identity, then they will learn 5 different ways of disclosure with pros and cons. After that, the participants will learn the skills of disclosing their own experience. The facilitator will make use of the facilitator’s handbook and the resources from the participants’ practice guide to assist the participants on understanding the program content. After the elementary course, the facilitator will follow-up with the participants on their decision of disclosing their own experience.
