Butterfly Programme

No Health Without Mental Health

計劃宗旨

We are committed to helping children and adolescents access the mental health care they need, addressing the gap of low-income families waiting for critical help under the public health system.

Over 12,000 children waited for over 2 years to receive public psychiatric service in 2020

  • SEN students increased 30% from 2016-17 to 2020-21
  • Learning problems escalated due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic: SLD, ADHD and ASD
  • Children and young people with SEN:
  • are more likely to experience increased levels of anxiety.
  • are at greater risk for depression.
  • may experience higher levels of loneliness.
  • may have a lower self-esteem.
  • are at greater risk of substance abuse.
  • may be at greater risk of anti-social behaviour.

Early intervention and nurturing environment are essential for children’s long-term health, development and growth

  • It’s hard to recognize mental health struggles in SEN children. Effective early childhood intervention is crucial to help them express their emotion and develop coping strategies.
  • Neglected parent-child interaction, school-readiness and child-focused activities will worsen children’s mental health issues.
