Abstract

The World Health Organization has warned that depression, which is an emotional illness, will become the second most prevalent killer in the world. Many young people are showing signs of depression and other mental illness: for example, Hospital Authority figures in Hong Kong show that between 1998/99 and 2000/01, the number of adolescents under 15 receiving mental health treatment rose from 1,355 to 2,321, an increase of over 70 percent. A web-based survey of all first year entrants to HKIEd at two-point: within first month of entrance, and six months later will be conducted, implication will be discussed.
