About Mad World:

Tung (played by Shawn Yue), a stockbroker diagnosed with bipolar disorder, readjusts to society after being dismissed from a mental health institution. The film explores his relationships with his father (played by Eric Tsang), who learns to support him, his former fiancée (played by Charmaine Fong), and his neighborhood.

Mad World was released in 2016 and is considered a call for awareness of mental health issues in Hong Kong society and support for people living with mental illnesses.

About 我就是我 More Than A Label

“More than a Label 我就是我” is Mind HK’s campaign in partnership with MINDSET, which stems from its goal of changing and influencing the public’s perception towards persons with diagnosable mental health conditions. Funded by Jardine Matheson Group, this campaign encourages the public to look beyond the typical, stigmatising, labels associated with mental health diagnoses. Through personal stories of mental health journeys, we want to showcase realistic portrayals of people who have faced mental health problems and recovered and depict their holistic identity.

With this campaign, we hope to raise awareness of the stigma towards persons with mental health conditions, celebrate the resilience and strength of people in recovery, and educate and equip the public with mental health knowledge. We believe this will facilitate more conversation in mental health, which will in turn help destigmatise mental health in Hong Kong.
