Focusing丨也许,你想找个人聊聊

10月10日是世界精神卫生日,又称世界心理健康日,这是提高人们对精神卫生、心理健康问题的认知,动员各方为此提供支持,扩大社会包容度的好机会。今年世界精神卫生日的主题为「使人人享有心理健康和福祉成为全球优先」("Make Mental Health & Well-Being for All a Global Priority.")。
World Mental Health Day (10 October) is an opportunity to raise awareness of mental health and mental health issues, mobilize support for them, and expand social inclusion. The theme of this year's World Mental Health Day is "Make Mental Health & Well-Being for All a Global Priority".



或许不少眼尖的同学已经发现了:上个月底,福州西湖国际学校一楼悄悄出现了一个“大白信箱”(心理信箱),旁边的橙色告示板明言:若你想找人聊聊,或有什么烦心事,欢迎给我写信,我会尽快联系你。这是怎么一回事?你尝试过寄出信件了吗?本期推文,我们就要向大家介绍这一部门:由Virginia Wu老师领衔的FLIS心理指导及咨询部门。
Perhaps many sharp-eyed students have already noticed: at the end of last month, a Hope Mailbox quietly appeared on the first floor of Fuzhou Lakeside International School, next to an orange notice board stating: If you want to talk to someone, or have any troubles, you are welcome to write to me, and I will contact you as soon as possible. What is this all about? Have you tried to send a letter? In this issue, we would like to introduce you to this department: the FLIS Guidance and Counseling Department, headed by Ms. Virginia Wu.

在现代快节奏的生活中,或多或少,每个人都要面对压力,并因此感到不安、恐惧。由于学业,青春期生理及心理变化所带来的压力,学生经历心理困扰或心理健康障碍的情况极为常见。对国际学生而言,还可能有额外的压力,如处理文化冲击造成的迷失,适应新环境及语言障碍带来的挑战,等等。心理健康问题会大大削弱学生达到课程要求的能力,亦大幅影响学生个人生活的方方面面。良好的心理健康对所有学生实现其学业成功至关重要。
In the modern fast-paced life, more or less everyone has to face stress and feel uneasy and fearful as a result. It is extremely common for students to experience psychological distress or mental health disorders due to the stresses associated with academics, physical and psychological changes during adolescence. For international students, there are additional sources of stress such as dealing with disorientation due to culture shock, the challenges of adjusting to a new environment and language barriers, and more. Mental health difficulties can significantly reduce a student’s capacity to meet their course requirements; it can also highly impact their personal lives throughout all aspects. Good mental health is essential for all students to achieve their academic success.



FLIS心理指导及咨询部门为来访者打造了一个温馨、富有安全感的环境,在这里,你所倾诉的一切将得到保密。我们希望通过个人咨询、沙盘游戏疗法、心理健康活动及工作坊等活动,与来访者建立一种彼此接受、信任的关系,从而改善学子心理健康状况、促进学生健康生活。
The FLIS Guidance and Counseling Department has created a warm, secure environment for visitors where everything you confide in will be kept confidential. Through individual counseling, sandplay therapy, mental health campaigns and workshops, we hope to build a mutually accepting and trusting relationship with our visitors, thereby improving the mental health of our students and promoting healthy living.



脆弱、高敏感、焦虑……等等疑似“负面”特质/情绪,既不该成为他人嘲笑你的理由,也不该成为你扎向自己的利器——这只是每个人都有可能经历的危机,且我们完全可以通过一些专业手段加以干预、提供帮助,并得到缓解。不少人已经背负着这份“羞耻”度过无数个漫漫长夜,或许你曾想过——现在,是时候卸下那沉重的心理负担。
Vulnerability, hypersensitivity, anxiety and other suspected "negative" traits/emotions should neither be a reason for others to ridicule you nor a weapon against yourself - they are just emotions everyone may experience in a crisis, and we can intervene, provide help and get relief through some professional means. Many people have spent countless long nights carrying this "shame", and maybe you've thought about it - now it's time to take that heavy psychological burden off.
