Multicultural Counselling Service for Non-local Students

Inspiration Hub , Personal Wellness

We all want to speak our minds freely, wherever we are. But sometimes we might find that some emotions are best expressed in our native language, and some situations are only resonated by people from the same background. It is the second year that the Wellness and Counselling Centre (WACC) of the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides Multicultural Counselling Service to support non-local students from CUHK, so that students can open up themselves in a comfortable environment.

The service is provided by St John’s Cathedral Counselling Service and all CUHK non-local students are eligible. The counsellors from St John’s Cathedral Counselling Service can provide counselling services in English or Putonghua, as well as in other languages such as German, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Sindhi, Spanish and Tagalog.

Details of the services are as follows:

Location:St John’s Cathedral Counselling Service
Address:7th Floor, Wings Building, 110-116 Queen’s Road Central, Central
