CSD video "Man Kei" tells story of recovery from depression

     Persons in custody, who have to serve their sentence and adapt to institution life, may be affected by mental health issues.

     Like 58-year-old Man Kei (false name), who was diagnosed as having depression and anxiety by clinical psychologists when she was admitted into Lo Wu Correctional Institution.

     She could not eat or sleep well and she even declined to communicate with others. The institution then arranged for her to take part in the "Psy Gym" - a gender-specific treatment programme to provide female persons in custody with systematic and professional psychological assessment and treatment.

     The Correctional Services Department (CSD) today (April 8) released a video about Man Kei, who was sentenced to imprisonment for money laundering. Since receiving psychological treatment she has shown tremendous improvement and rediscovered her individual strengths and potential. She has regained her confidence and recovered from her depression. Man Kei has now been released from prison and her statutory supervision period has been completed. She is free physically and mentally. Her experience can offer encouragement to those who may suffer from mental health problems. With encouragement from others and appropriate treatment it is always possible to recover from depression.

     Members of the public are invited to watch the video about Man Kei, which has been uploaded onto the CSD YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRCF6McpHao&feature=youtu.be.
