JUSTONE - Mental Health Linking Project
JUSTONE - Mental Health Linking Project is a 24-hour tele-health support service in Hong Kong funded by Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation starting from 1 September 2017. In order to have early prevention, identification and holistic follow up on mental health condition, 24-hours telephone support is provided to people with emotional or mental disturbance and their family members so that early intervention can be done especially to those who have not received any service or treatment. To alleviate the daily pressure of caregivers, peer support network will also be established to strengthen their mental health. To promote public awareness on mental health and the needs of people in recovery as well as their caregivers, volunteer training, community education and advocacy work are organized so that society without stigma and labeling could be created.
