Jockey Club Mental Wellness Project for Women (JCWow)
賽馬會思妍婦女精神健康計劃 (ongoing)


Jockey Club Mental Wellness Project for Women (JCWOW) constructs a comprehensive real-life system to improve mental health and prevent mental disorders in grassroots women (Women-In-Need, WiN). WiN is a high-risk population that experience more mental disorders, including psychosis. WiN with psychosis have particularly adverse outcomes. Mass-media health messages also have less penetration amongst WiN.

A comprehensive eclectic gender-specific program is required to enhance early detection of WiN at risk of mental disorders and to offer preventative intervention before disorders are entrenched. By reducing psychosocial stress and maladaptive thinking patterns, the program aims to prevent the onset of mental disorders, as well as to improve the outcome of those with psychosis through empirically demonstrated Body-Mind-Spirit Interventions.
