HKBU students’ drama promoting suicide prevention wins championship

浸大學生團隊憑原創探討自殺劇目奪冠

A 19-person HKBU team called “Shall We Talk” won the championship in the Best Practice Award of the WeCare Fund project with a self-directed play written to express concerns over the suicide issue.

The HKBU team won HK$50,000 to carry out a second phase of their winning project. They plan to produce a new play comprising three stories and a self-written Chinese song to further promote positive energy in life.

Around 10 members of the winning team are HKBU Dramatics Club students. They performed a self-directed play to raise public awareness on suicide, and to inspire the audience to reflect on their role in suicide prevention. The play is made up of three parts: the first tries to find the reasons behind youth suicide and the roles of various stakeholders in society. The second part conveys the message that people around can help those in need by paying attention to the people who ask for assistance. The third part encourages connection and communication between people, and to have hope for tomorrow.

Team leader Sam Wan (Chinese Language and Literature, Year 4) said the team has been planning a new play with three parts and an original Chinese song. Sam, who learnt lyric writing skills at HKBU, added that he wants to apply his knowledge to this meaningful project.

The Best Practice Award of the WeCare Fund project was initiated by Hong Kong Jockey Club Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention of The University of Hong Kong. The project attracted entries from 10 tertiary institutions. A total of 14 selected projects were funded. These projects sought to nurture positive emotions on campuses and enhance awareness of mental health issues among youths.

浸大學生組成共19人的團隊「Shall we talk」,憑創作探討自殺的話劇,早前在香港大學香港賽馬會防止自殺研究中心舉辦的「與你同行資助計劃」中,奪得「卓越實踐計劃獎」冠軍。

浸大隊獲50,000元資金用作擴展其得獎項目。他們正籌備項目第二階段的工作,初步構思三個新故事和一首自編曲詞的中文歌曲,進一步宣揚生命正能量。

浸大隊當中約10人來自浸大劇社,他們透過表演原創劇,表達對自殺議題的關注,讓觀眾反思個人在預防自殺的角色。劇目由三個故事組成,第一個故事探討自殺的成因,以及社會上不同持份者在自殺事件中擔當的角色;第二個故事提出要把握關心身邊人的機會,別錯過他們的求助訊號;第三個故事鼓勵人與人之間互相溝通、坦誠表達及要對明天抱有希望。

隊長溫嘉朗(中國語言文學四年級)表示,團隊現正籌備項目新階段的工作,希望構思三個同樣宣揚預防自殺的故事和一首自編曲詞的歌曲。嘉朗在浸大曾學習填詞技巧,他希望能學以致用編寫歌詞。

「與你同行資助計劃」共有10所大專院校合共14個計劃獲資助,旨在策動精神健康相關活動,在校園宣揚正能量。
