Wan Tsui House is a half-way house assisting people recovering from mental illness to re-integrate into the community. To me, it’s not only a turning point, but also a place for self-development.

I have built up my living skills and self-image through joining various groups organized by the house. For example, preparation group for discharge assisted me to get ready for my new living. Another therapeutic group helped me gain a better understanding about myself.

Numerous activities have been organized in the house, such as “Wan Tsui Award Scheme”, which has strengthened our self-care ability through competition between different rooms and received token as reward in return. The Scheme also encouraged us to do more exercise. For the past two years, I have met different residents in the house. We did things together, for example, enjoying meals, watching TV, joining activities together. I have learnt more about myself, and most important of all, I have developed valuable friendship. 

In conclusion, I am happy to acquire knowledge and skills for independent living. What I treasure most is the friendship embedded in knowing other residents in the house. I sincerely hope that my personal experience could bless others and make their journey less difficult.
