Physical and Mental Health and Wellbeing Consulting (PMWC)

Introduction

People are more open to talk about mental health nowadays, but it's misperceived to be intangible therefore impossible or harder to prevent, detect and manage than physical problems. On the other hand, the majority of mental health training is focused on raising awareness of anxiety, depression and simple self-help tools, which is too simple and basic to empower one to improve psychological and general wellbeing.

Did you know

  • 25% of GP appointments in the UK are due to medically unexplained symptoms (MUS)?

  • MUS are largely related to psychological issues?

  • GPs often refer those with MUS to a psychological professional, but it's felt that these professionals mainly listen to problems without doing anything else?

It equips the following groups of people with effective means to become resourceful, thus enables them to handle stressors and minimize their harmful impacts on physical and mental health and wellbeing.


Young People

  • Half of all mental health conditions start by age 14 but most cases are undetected and untreated.

  • Studies discovered that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), including sexual and physical abuse, neglect and bereavement, have horrific impacts on brain development, and lead to numerous poor physical and mental health outcomes.

  • Depression is the fourth leading cause of illness and disability among adolescents aged 15–19 and fifteenth for those aged 10–14.

  • A 2020 Insight Network survey of students from 10 universities discovered almost half had experienced a serious psychological issue for which they felt they needed professional help

What can PMWC do differently?

  • Empowering parents and organisations working with young people to prevent, early detect and manage ACEs and minimise their impacts on physical and mental health

  • Empowering the youth to learn essential skills and knowledge to become resourceful thus to tackle stressors practically, intellectually, emotionally and physically



Older People

  • Mental and neurological disorders among older adults account for 6.6% of the total disability for this age group

  • Approximately 15% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental disorder.

  • Over one million people in later life say they always or often feel lonely

  • Older people have a higher risk for chronic conditions, such as bowel cancer, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, primary hyperaldosteronism, retinal detachment, osteoporosis, dementia and more.

PWMC aims to empower older people to strengthen healthy living, early detect and manage commonly seen health issues effectively.



Women

  • 25.7% of women and 9.7% of men aged 16-24 report having self-harmed at some point in their life.

Immigrants & Refugees - (Legal) Wellbeing Advice

  • Most legal battles last for years, which cause massive psychological and emotional distress.

  • On the other hand few people are entitled to legal aid, and cannot pay legal fees privately. So most of them are forced to give up fighting for justice to avoid financial, psychological burnout and stress-related diseases.

testimonials

"The webinar was enjoyable, useful and very relevant to me. As someone who has anxious periods and a demanding job, the guidance provided by Hong was incredibly valuable. During the webinar, Hong spoke about the significant role that human ecosystem can play in mental health. This was a real eye opener for me as I wasn’t aware of this. It has provided me with new ways of how to explore methods to improve my mental health. The use of dance and movements too during a webinar was a unique experience for me. The webinar has provided me with new ways of trying to support my overall mental well-being."

- Nick, London

"The session was full of energy and enthusiasm. Hong was regularly checking in with the attendees for any questions or discussing the flow of the session. I enjoyed that it was a balance of interaction (dance and exercises) and Hong's presentation.

I've learned new things: other cultures, Thai Chi moments and more about mental health and how to deal with this."

-Angelique, London

"We funded Hong Zhou to deliver some engaging workshops in our area focused on mental and physical well-being. They covered a wide range of health-related topics from both Western and Eastern perspectives as well as dance movements, such as Korean Pop Dance, Taichi and more, which participants greatly enjoyed!"
