Brainstorm Hong Kong follows the business model of a US benefit corporation. Our innovative projects and platforms support greater understanding of mental health, artistic self-expression, innovation and social enterprise.
Brainstorm provides access to film & media opportunities for people affected by mental illness through its inspirational Mental Ideas platform. Our projects enrich and assist mental health recovery by offering new ways of channeling energy, rebuilding shattered self-esteem, making sense of intense emotions that are hard to voice, coming to terms with the traumatic life events that may have triggered mental illness and exploring world perspectives.
Amongst the multitude of crucial benefits our projects and platforms provide are enhanced creativity, self-knowledge, self-expression, self-esteem, communication, leadership and collaborative skills. Brainstorm consistently reinforces the truth that we all matter equally. We can each make a profound contribution to shaping our communities and our world.
In creating all our projects, we pay special attention to the causes of mental illness (e.g. loneliness due to a sudden job transfer, isolating disabilities, loss, family breakdown, etc.) in order to provide creative relief, understanding & inspiration for Hong Kong ‘Brainstormers’ and our global community of art-activists and supporters.
