Hands-on approach to mental illness

With the aim of combatting the fear and misconceptions surrounding mental illness, Castle Peak Hospital’s Mind Space museum enables visitors to experience hallucinations, similar to the sensory experiences mentally ill patients encounter, by way of rooms that utilise virtual reality (VR) technology.   A group of secondary students recently embarked on a journey through Mind Space after registering and receiving patient wristbands. This unique mental health experience museum provided them with a comprehensive understanding of the development of psychiatric services in Hong Kong.   Displays in the museum showcase intriguing relics, including the evolution of restraints and handwritten patient records. Additionally, the students were given the opportunity to explore a mock protection room designed to provide a calming environment for patients.   Furthermore, students could learn about the scientific aspects behind the causes of mental illness at the Brain Tour zone.

237 COVID-19 cases found

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is looking into 237 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 108 were detected by nucleic acid tests and 129 were identified via rapid antigen tests.   Among the new cases, 37 are imported while the rest are locally infected.   Since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, 1,199,464 people have contracted the virus and 9,163 people passed away.   Separately, the Government made a restriction-testing declaration to cover Tsui Yue House of Tsui Ping (North) Estate in Kwun Tong. People in the restricted area are required to undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.   As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several buildings and housing estates in Kwun Tong, Kwai Tsing and Eastern districts, the Housing Department and respective district offices will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as to cleaning workers and property management staff working there.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government’s dedicated webpage.
