Tree of Life Volunteer Project is a volunteer scheme implemented by Integrated Services for Mental Health since 2004.
- To facilitate exchange and communication between community and the recovered and their families
- To minimise discrimination and misunderstanding
- To achieve community inclusion
- To raise awareness of volunteers towards physical and mental health of individuals
The logo symbolises that everyone is like a branch of the tree of life nourished by sun and water and supporting each other and therefore bearing the fruits of life.
The Project emphasises the volunteer training. Apart from mental health knowledge and volunteer skills training, we also invite experienced volunteers, art therapists and counsellors as mentors in teaching volunteers the philosophy of “Walk and Experience with Love and Care”.
