Fighting Mental Illness Stigma in HK

Former mental illness patients are facing difficulties when looking for a job, due to the social stigma attached to mental ill health, according to Alliance of Ex-mentally ill of Hong Kong.
Ann, who is a former schizophrenia patient, decided to dedicate herself to mental health education.
Now, she is a volunteer for ‘Human Library’, a library where former mental illness patients will share their story with readers.

This is a project for MAIJS program, Hong Kong Baptist University
