Last updated on 23rd December 2022
Welcome to our website!
Hong Kong has a unique geographical location. To many of us in Hong Kong, disaster seems so far yet so near.
In recent years, Hong Kong has experienced different types of disasters such as the deadly blaze at a Yau Ma Tei tenement, super typhoons like "Hato" and "Mangkhut", and COVID-19, etc. All these have caused extensive damages and even taken lives. In the face of disasters, are we well-equipped with relevant knowledge to respond?
This Disaster Psychosocial Services Website which is constructed by the Corporate Clinical Psychology Services (CCPS), Hospital Authority, will help you to:
- Acquire information of disasters including disaster preparedness & response etc.;
- Find out the psychological impacts and stress reactions on disasters;
- Learn how to handle emotions and offer support to people; and
- Get hold of community resources, etc.
Members of the Disaster Psychosocial Services Team (DPST) in the Hospital Authority can visit the "DPST Corner", a restricted page specially designed to facilitate communication among members, and to allow sharing of professional resources and featured news/photos of the latest activities.
We hope you will learn more about disaster psychosocial services and get to know better the know-how for early preparation!
