Cooperative Project - Christian Family Service Centre, Centre for Adolescent Mental Health Prevention and Intervention

Store of Happiness 幸福雜貨舖

The Centre for Adolescent Mental Health Prevention and Intervention was set up in 2011 to provide one-stop services for adolescents with mental health concerns.

This group of Digital Media students worked on an animation, with the grocery store owner in Meng Po image, who uses simple Chinese ingredients (柴米油鹽醬醋茶) to make “To-forget” dumplings set (忘憂餃子套餐) for people who visit. The “To-forget” dumplings set represents mental food, and would take away people’s worries and clouded thoughts. The grocery store named “Store of Happiness” (幸福雜貨舖) also aims to introduce the Centre’s mobile counselling services.

Work-integrated Education in PolyU brings students together with real-world clients both inside and outside the classroom. Students’ fresh ideas, energy and passion lead to exciting opportunities for clients and collaborators. 
The Cooperative Project is undertaken as a compulsory subject in the first semester of students’ final year of study. Collaborators ranging from commercial enterprises to government departments and non-profit organisations work together with tutors to come up with design briefs that meet the needs of their target audiences.
