Taking life back and journeying forward

Icey Kwan, is a person in recovery (PIR) from Bipolar Disorder.In the past, when Icey would have a manic phase, it would feel like a landslide wiping out her entire life. Her condition has fluctuated over the years, and it has dominated her life. Icey and her family have all been affected. When Icey felt most hopeless, she tried to harm herself. Fortunately, with the help of close friends, social workers and her faith, Icey gradually learned to live with her condition and begin her journey toward recovery. As Icey describes it, having bipolar disorder is like being forced into a battle for your life. But that battle has allowed her to see her own strengths. Her experience with the condition has even given her the courage to chase her dreams. Icey now works as a peer support worker for the Alliance of Ex-mentally Ill of Hong Kong. She wants to bring hope to her peers and their families.
