Mental Health is largely misunderstood

From our study, we found that mental health is still largely stigmatised: 46% falsely believe that the main cause of mental illness is a lack of self-discipline and willpower
62% agreed that mental illness can easily be identified. Only 41% of respondents agreed that people with mental health problems are far less of a danger than people assume. In reality, people with mental illness are no more violent than people without mental illness. Misunderstandings revolving around mental health persist in Hong Kong and continue to lead to stigmas and misconceptions. This calls for a growing need to raise awareness and education around mental health.
