A step in the right direction, but is it enough?
We all know how much stress Hong Kong students go through with the time commitment to studying, exam pressure and competing for placements. From 2015 – 2018 there have been 52 suicides from primary and secondary schools. The government recently announced that all secondary schools in Hong Kong are to get two social workers for each publicly funded school in the territory to put an end to youth suicides. Hopefully this provides enough support to put an end to this problem.
