I’m so glad to know this course, learnt a lot from it and got my Master degree in Psychological Medicine (Psychosis Studies) finally. I’m a student counsellor in university and as all of you know that suicidal rate among students in Hong Kong was rising at past years. This course equipped me professional knowledge about psychiatric drugs, side effects, risk of quitting medication without good communication with psychiatrists, how to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help patients etc. Thanks Professor Chen, all the teachers for your kind teaching and thanks for all those professional guest speakers in mental health field. I learn a lot from your helping experience and real case sharing. I highly recommend this course to those people who want to know more and contribute more in mental health field.

MPM program provided a great atmosphere and resources in the 2-year study. It provided updated and in-depth knowledge of psychosis in the lecture. The dissertation was a great opportunity to explore psychosis. My supervisor gave me enormous support and inspiration during the study. It is worth joining this program if you are interested in psychosis.

I am extremely blessed to be one of the graduates of this master programme which is the only psychosis studies program offered among the universities in HK. This course does not only widen my horizon on psychosis, but most importantly, it helps me to gain better insight into the importance of early recognition and intervention of patients with early psychosis to improve long-term outcome. The role plays and interactive discussions during lectures undoubtedly made our learning experience fruitful and remarkable. I deeply appreciate Professor Chen and all doctors who dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to promote mental health education in HK. I believe that with the concerted efforts from the mental health professionals, researchers and clinicians, the heterogeneity of psychosis would be unveiled endlessly.

The MPsyMed programme provided students chances to explore mental illness in depth. The schizophrenic-spectrum centered curriculum enhances my knowledge to early psychosis and schizophrenia. With that knowledge, not only the core of schizophrenia and early psychosis such as symptoms could be understood but also different types of mental illness could be comprehended by analogy. As mental illness becomes an important issue in nowadays world, I think the MPsyMed programme is suitable for people who are interested.

The two-year learning-experience MPM was no doubt precious. There are few things that worth highlighting in particular. First, the guest speakers invited are all leading experts in the field, which made the course very classy. Second, classmates from multidisciplinary professions allowed for insightful discussions. Third, we managed to maintain good relationship outside classroom and would share new ideas from time to time. Last but not least, this is the first and by far the only postgraduate course that focuses on Psychosis, our pioneering dissertations in fact made significant scientific contributions.
