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

Visible Heart

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 project aims to promote positive messages to the target audience, and raise awareness to children and adolescents who are struggling with different mental and emotional issues.

Students produced three short animation clips - Sadness of Glass, Anger of Steel and Fear of Ink, which was represented by the shape of the heart to show different stages of emotions.

The videos aim to share different mental health issues and also to encourage young people to care for, understand and accompany their peers and those in need, and bring positivity into their lives.

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.
