To commemorate the first anniversary of our More Than a Label campaign, Mind HK has joined hands with its ambassadors to present this exhibition, “More Than A Label: I was, I am, I will be”.
We all have things we want to tell our younger selves; lessons we wish we knew, things that could’ve been done differently, or ways we could have reacted differently.
This exhibition represents Mind HK’s ambassadors’ thoughts and feelings towards their past experiences in going through their mental health journey. The stories shared by art represent a self-reflection of their journey so far with mental health and what has helped them to grow with greater empathy, resilience and bravery.
Exhibits by the ambassadors include written pieces in the form of a “Letter to Yourself”, whereby they address their past selves experiencing mental health challenges, poems, and artistic 3D-printed brains painted to depict their mental health journey. These stories provide personal, inspiring, and accurate insights into the lives of Mind HK’s ambassadors who have faced mental health experiences.
Use this exhibition as a mechanism to reflect on your own past, present, and future. Together, let’s start conversations with ourselves and others to shed light on how we need to look beyond the label for everyone who has experienced a mental health condition.

“More than a Label” 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.
