AbstractRecent economic crisis in Hong Kong leading to layoffs, closure of businesses and bankruptcies was used to account for the substantial increase in percentages of depressed moods, interpersonal relationship problems and vocational difficulties found among callers of a mental health telephone counseling service in Hong Kong. Socio-cultural factors were also put forward to explain the passive help-seeking behaviors of callers, as well as the relationships between the increase in vocational difficulties and depressed moods and anxieties observed in the male callers. Suggestions towards the provision of primary and secondary prevention programmes in mental health were made.
